Matthew Barney’s Cremaster 4
“Painting” or “sculpting” with moving pictures is an art form that’s been around since the 1960s. An offshoot or sidebar of the experimental-film movement of the period, video art strives to turn filmed or videotaped imagery into art that can be displayed in museums and galleries alongside more traditional forms.
