On Video by Roy Armes

| /

The following description of this book was written during the eighties when VIDEO was f@cking mind blowing:

Though video systems are now growing ever more accessible, and practical video work is undertaken at every level of education, this is the first book-length historical and theoretical study of the medium. On Video explores video on two levels: first, it examines the relationship between technology and society; and second, it probes the connection between production methods and the communication of meaning.
