Burt Barr’s (New York, USA, 1938) video art uses film and television as a means of inspiration. The modern spectator is accustomed to narratives, film and television resources. They are able to recognise and interpret ellipses, transitions, assembly chains, subjective shots, etc. and manage to understand the message the director wants to convey while arriving at their own conclusions. Barr uses the same tools that we are used to to create his videos. Through very intense images and minimalism for the final effect, the American artist has achieved a highly recognisable style.
