A study of showing video art in books

Besides being a retrospective of video works, the publication is also a study of transfering moving image to a rather static medium. The approach was to newly curate the video content regarding to the specific framework of a book. Short video excerpts were edited to create image sequences that can be viewed like a flip-book. Hence the reader can comprehend motifs of movement without having seen the actual video work. Additionally, the sound tracks – including speech and atmospheric sound – were edited into written text and printed in the style of captions below the video stills. Its handy size makes this book a medium of communication.
