Scope:
See the record for "New Television, Episode 410 (1988)" for descriptions of videos containing this work.

"Aviation Memories" is described as a "virtual multi-channel video installation." The work begins as an introduction to possible installations of video work, showing (with diagrams and animation) how monitors and related objects would be placed in a gallery setting. As the content of the video itself is described and presented, the work blurs the line between art object and planning document. Many of the images presented are derived from the illustrations of Jan Vredemande Vries (1527-1604). Architectural themes prevail. Archival footage of collapsing buildings is incorporated. The work is approximately seven minutes long.
