Reading 2 questions

Here are my two questions for the second reading assignment:

1. A little over 20 years ago Sadie Benning used a toy camera to video tape herself in high school. She wanted to document her feelings as she was beginning to experience sexual maturity. Since then technology has come a long way. How would a teenager today approach the same art idea? How would the recording technique and ideas change?

2. Early on in the reading it discusses that the artist's video should differ from a video for an advertisement because it is not meant for mass consumption. It also states that art should be distinguished from the uses of video, no matter how artful they seem. Where do we draw that line? Can we relate that to other mediums or art forms?
