the videowall is an art form… for the 21st.century… it is four-dimensional… the artist paints with video in time… on an electronic canvas… a digital simulacrum of human experience… a theatre of complexity… juxtaposition, repetition and rhythm… creating a new language of synthesis… experiential, not perceptual… a videowall is not an object… it is a dynamic metaphor… programmed, rendered, non-linear… it deconstructs time and space… and recombines creative ideas… into a representative reality… where form generates content… where program determines object… and where the substance of meaning is found in the world… between the screens…
