>below are works by video artist Bill Viola

Migration, 1976

The Reflecting Pool, 1977-79

Anthem, 1983

Thoughts: The moving image is one of the most powerful and most malleable of mediums for artistic expression. The tragedy (and the triumph) of mainstream cinema is its slavish acceptance of little else outside a set of limited conventions. Videos, like the ones above, remind us of other possibilities.
