Processual Video

1980, 11:13 min, b&w, sound

Hill's work with image processing allowed him to experiment with the creation of imagery as parallel and counterpoint to the improvised meanings of language. Processual Video was originally created by Hill as a lecture on his work, for the Video Viewpoints series at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. He states, "It was an attempt to circumscribe my work and working methods, reflecting those ideas in the structure of the 'lecture' itself." Processual Video's formal play with minimal electronic imaging intersects with a discursive narrative text about movement and the perception of form, resulting in aleatory resonances, accidental relationships between words and vision that become causal via a progressive feedback effect.
