Monitor 1

by Partridge, Stephen

Video 1975


'Monitor is another important early work by Partridge which demonstrates his interest in structuralism... In Monitor Partridge is looking to find those structures which characterise the language of video. In order to do this, he has to make video turn in on itself: he has to make the medium of video self-reflexive. His most obvious way of doing this in Monitor (apart from its title!) is to turn the camera onto the monitor itself, so that the subject of the video becomes itself.' - John Calcutt
