We may expect some aspects of the contemporary experience of time and space to be reflected in recent video art and performance artworks. These two relatively young art forms, both having emerged in the 1960s, have often featured the construction of time and space as a core characteristic of specific works. These artworks have at times reflected the complexity of hybrid space, in which the virtual overlaps with physical space. Time has been assayed in myriad ways: the subjective experience of time has been weighed against the chronological charting of time; brief intensities of time have been contrasted with long, demanding durations. Video artists, exploiting the possibilities of digital video and computer editing, have created video works that manipulate time and build contained and particular versions of space. Performance art in many ways has been concerned with time: the real time of live performance, mediated time, extended duration, the psychological experience of time. Both art forms have produced capsules of spacetime that reveal facets of the contemporary experience and conceptualisation of space and time.
