Video and performance: many chronic returns

Robert Hugh Nelson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearch

Abstract

Performance does not define video. There are many types of video that contain no performance. Some simply deal with the expiry of time rather than the significance of an action. Nevertheless, video often contains a performance; and sometimes, the performance accords with a unique property of video, namely the loop.
