INA BLOM: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF VIDEO -- THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A MEMORY TECHNOLOGY. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791895 In English.
Publisher's description: In her innovative take on early video art, Norwegian scholar Ina Blom considers the widespread notion that video technology was endowed with lifelike memory and agency. She follows the unfolding of a technology that folded artists and artistic frameworks into the creation of new technical and social realities. She documents, among other things, video's development through the framework of painting, its identification with biological life, its exploration of the outer limits of technical and mental time control, and its construction of new realms of labor and collaboration. Enlisting her distinctly archaeological approach in studying the field of new media art, Blom's new book -- her second from Sternberg -- is a brilliant look at the relationship between video memory and social ontology. Blom is a professor at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo, as well as visiting professor at the Department of Art History, University of Chicago.
