26/2/16 – Video Art Installation

The meaning of my video art is about relaxation and happiness because of the bright lights to reflect different colours. My video art will also include some other relaxing things like flowers blowing softly in the wind too. The part of my video art with the pencil with lighted colours around it may be reversed so the colours will disappear one by one slowly. The flowers will have blossomed and won’t be sped up or slowed down. This just helps to portray relaxing even more because the flowers will probably be brightly coloured.

Nam June Paik founded the video art. He was known for making robots out of television sets. These were constructed using pieces of wire and metal, but later Paik used parts from radio and television sets.

BITNIK sent a parcel containing a camera and a GPS signal to the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, to find out what would happen on the way.
