Video Art: Type of artwork which began in New York in the mid-1960s, made on videotape usually for viewing on a television screen. Since video is an electronic medium rather than a style, the results tend to be almost as varied as the artists using it. T~ generalise: as with Performance art, the early conceptual phase of the 1970s has given way to a Post-Modernist phase (using the mass media ‘from within’) in the late 1980s and 1990s. Rock and music videos sometimes owe a lot to video art (and more recently, vice versa).
Sound art is a diverse group of art practices that considers wide notions of sound, listening and hearing as its predominant focus. There are often distinct relationships forged between the visual and aural domains of art and perception by sound artists.
