Quotes edit

  • When I started in video I was one of two or three dozen video artists in 1970. And now, to paraphrase Andy Warhol, everyone's a video artist. Video, through your cellphone and camcorder, has become a form of speech, and speech is not James Joyce. It's great, and to be celebrated, but it has to find its own level.
    • Bill Viola, in: Leo Benedictus. "Tomorrow's world," in; The Guardian, Wednesday 12 July 2006.
