Video art isn’t generally the kind of artistic means that gets my attention. So, when a piece does attract my liking, it is because it is outstanding.
Ryan Trecartin is one such brilliant artist:
What strikes me the most about his pieces are the way he creates his videos: a script written poetry-like, to which the first-time actors have no access but are told how to feel upon acting directly to the camera.
The bits on YouTube are part of a larger motion picture, which is theoretically meant to be shown on movie theaters. Trecartin is fond of showing them this way, though, for they get immediate response.
