Night Flight - The Video Artist (Kit Fitzgerald)
Tonight, we bring you another episode of "The Video Artist," an original Night Flight segment exploring the work of pioneers in New Media art. This episode highlights the self-proclaimed "TV Artist" Kit Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald creates abstract expressionist video collages featuring impossible landscapes and non-linear time. In an interview with Night Flight, Fitzgerald explains that her work "derives from Duchamp, the idea of artwork being made complete not by the artist solely, but by he or she who encounters it and what they bring to it." Her collaborative music video with Jon Sanborn for King Crimson's "Heartbeat" is the standout.
