Video Art is one the very first samples of digital arts. It is digital art works that use video as the main means of recording and presentation. Through video artists either produce or reproduce pictures of a visual aspect by using forms and colours likewise traditional arts, such as painting. The picture becomes a moving pattern, in which photography, motion and sound transform into tools in artists’ hands and emancipate fantasy and experimental mood in a field that attracts People of Arts and not necessarily artists of a special cultural practice. Visual artists, musicians, dancers, poets choose video as a means of expression and through experimentation and various aesthetic pursuits everything is used; both normal and fringe usage of technology, accomplishing to form a brand new cultural language. Video Art, closely connected to technological developments, acquires constantly new accoutrements to conquer the world of modern arts and to be announced one of the most ambitious, innovative, powerful and plural art forms.

Christine A. Tarantino is an American artist (b. 1948, New York City) who specializes in visual poetry and artist books. She has also been known as Words of Light, CHRISTAR and 'the homeless poet'.
As soon as I make a mark on my paper, that mark is dead. It no longer flows, it stops. I consider it an artistically ethical challenge then. Do I want the marks I make to really be there? And should all marks of art be beautiful? I say yes, to try is to aspire.
A picture can be skillfully painted but totally devoid of art. Art then is the 'power to percieve the beautiful and of expressing it in artistic form'. This is the true definition of fine art. Always has been, always will be.
