Text Quotes
Live your Art. Don’t think about it  (Bill Viola Quotes) I think we’re in an age where artists really have an incredible range of materials at their command now. They can use almost anything from household items - Jackson Pollock used house paint - to, you know, advanced computer systems, to good old oil paint and acrylic paint  (Bill Viola Quotes) I came of age at the end of the 1960s, just when video was also coming into the world. Companies such as Sony and Panasonic were starting to market it and we artists immediately knew how it could be used  (Bill Viola Quotes) Emotions are the key to many aspects of life. They are precisely the elements that make human beings human. I think the fact that emotions have been reduced and put off to the side in intellectual work, particularly in the 20th Century, is tragic  (Bill Viola Quotes) The fundamental aspect of video is not the image, even though you can stand in amazement at what can be done electronically, how images can be manipulated and the really extraordinary creative possibilities. For me the essential basis of video is the movement - something that exists at the moment and changes in the next moment  (Bill Viola Quotes) A doctor once told me that with crying you aren’t sure what its derivation is. If someone comes at you with a knife, you don’t cry: you scream, you try to run. When it’s over and you’re OK, that’s when you cry  (Bill Viola Quotes) The world is fine and everything is normal and then, bang, you just get bowled over by the wrathful deities somehow. That happens in very small ways and happens in very large ways when you have a major conflagration in the world. It’s another cycle of existence of human beings.  (Bill Viola Quotes) Art is, for me, the process of trying to wake up the soul. Because we live in an industrialized, fast-paced world that prefers that the soul remain asleep.  (Bill Viola Quotes) In the 1970s, a lot of critics didn’t understand video. I got a lot of bad reviews. But film-makers didn’t understand what we were doing, either. There were actual fistfights between film-makers and video-makers. I was witness to one.  (Bill Viola Quotes) There is a big push that we all are engaged in, in wanting to have the newest in innovation - and I think that’s all really great. But I also feel that human beings need to be aware of, and grounded in, history.  (Bill Viola Quotes) When you come into my pieces, it’s not an intellectual experience, it’s a physical experience. It’s coming at your body. There’s light, there’s sound, the lights in some pieces are going on and off. There’s loud roaring sound happening.  (Bill Viola Quotes) If you look at landscape in historical terms, you realize that most of the time we have been on Earth as a species, what has fallen on our retina is landscape, not images of buildings and cars and street lights.  (Bill Viola Quotes) Creativity is not the property of artists alone. It’s a basic element of the human character, no matter what culture you’re in, no matter where you are on Earth or in history.  (Bill Viola Quotes) When you’re making video, you’re giving structure to time, which is what a composer does  (Bill Viola Quotes) Since the time of St. Jerome, it was mandatory for any kind of scholar or thinker to spend time out in the desert in solitude. It’s no coincidence that the desert has been a major part of the visionary or mystical experience from the beginning of time  (Bill Viola Quotes) There’s another world out there just beyond the world we’re in. It’s just on the other side of that translucent, semitransparent surface  (Bill Viola Quotes) I would prefer to be forgotten, then rediscovered in a different age  (Bill Viola Quotes) I spend a lot of time writing. I get inspiration from texts rather than images  (Bill Viola Quotes) People have experiences in art museums today that they used to have in church  (Bill Viola Quotes) There is an invisible world out there, and we are living in it  (Bill Viola Quotes) I like to keep the meanings in my work flowing and open  (Bill Viola Quotes) Revolution is something that actually starts in individual hearts  (Bill Viola Quotes) Video artists being at the low end of the totem pole economically, one of the ways we survive is to go around showing work and giving these talks  (Bill Viola Quotes) You are just as qualified as any expert to make a judgment and have a feeling or a response to any work of art  (Bill Viola Quotes) A lot of what making art is, is just being open, and empty. And putting yourself in the right place for things to, literally, come together  (Bill Viola Quotes) My works really begin in a very simple way. Sometimes it’s an image, and sometimes it’s words I might write, like a fragment of a poem  (Bill Viola Quotes) The human brain is probably one of the most complex single objects on the face of the earth; I think it is, quite honestly  (Bill Viola Quotes) Art has always had as its test in the long term the ability to speak to our innermost selves  (Bill Viola Quotes)
