Roads to Recursion. Some historiographical remarks on a core category of Media Art

Contenido del artículo principal

Slavko Kacunko

Resumen

In this paper, the general arena between analogue and digital media art is explored with special respect to the concept of the ‘newness’ of media. The first part confirms the Closed Circuit as an ‘open system’ related to its right to an evolution towards increasing complexity without the reciprocal playing-off of self-referential ‘life’ against ‘hetero-referential’ technique. The second part refers to the continuity of research undertaken in media, art and art-history and discussion in related fields while the concepts of ‘new’ media have repeatedly admitted the Closed Circuit as a core category in ‘New’ Media Art. The third part introduces one content-related categorization of Closed Circuit video installations which has been regarded as representative for the general ‘fields of inquiry’ of both analogue and digital media art.
