MOVE primary was created to introduce and inspire primary students to the magic and possibilities of video art. Each of these five highly acclaimed young Australian artists, Shaun Galdwell, Jess MacNeil, Joan Ross, Grant Stevens and Daniel von Sturmer, brings different ideas and techniques to work which we hope will succeed in opening the eyes of the young to the wonders of contemporary art, the art of our time. Artists have always experimented with new ways of expressing ideas about our world and new materials with which to do so - from tubes of paint to the camera to the moving images of film and video. Moving images are part of our everyday lives: on TV, computer screens, in cinemas and shopping centres. Video art captures movement and time, it takes time to watch and changes as we're watching. Like all artists, video artists consider how, where and why they are making the work, where it will be seen and what they want to communicate. Each of the five artists whose work is represented in MOVE primary takes his or her video camera on a different journey and has a different story to tell. Video titles: Kickflipper (Shaun Gladwell); The swimmers (Jess MacNeil); Funny face I love you (Joan Ross); Macaroni (Grant Stevens); The object of things (Sequence 2) (Daniel von Sturmer).
