Closed circuit Bruce Nauman + Dan Graham [VIDEO PIONeERS]

Because no editing equipment was available until mid-1970's, and the tapes were not compatible with the broadcast signal, most of the early artists' videos focused on real-time closed-circuit conceptual projects

Bruce Nauman

His practice spans a broad range of media including sculpture, photography, neon, video, drawing, printmaking, and performance.

By the early 1970s, with his corridors and other large-scale rooms and environments, Nauman had withdrawn his own presence, shifting the focus of his work to manipulating the movement and experience of the beholder.


Dan Graham

Used video for exploring the camera's viewpoint as part of a study of illusionistic perception and architectural space relations were Dan Graham, Peter Campus, Ira Schneider, and Frank Gillette.

Graham was one of the first video artists to fully explore the relation between video and the process of viewing and being viewed.
