Since the Whitney Biennial went

Since the Whitney Biennial went up again, everyone's thinking once again about video art. At least, I am. Especially: what exactly is it that makes visual art that is made using video different from short movies? Standing around in a museum gallery watching a 20 minute film with a regular old narrative structure is just not fun. The Turner Prize in the UK has been all over video art for the past few years even. I saw this great short movie (that was actually nominated for an Oscar) at P.S. 1 last year in their "hive" structure--so is it just a movie? Is it "museum art"? Somebody needs to sort this out.
