In stock


Nam June Paik was one of the most presciently visionary artists of his generation, one who foresaw the ascendance of the screen in modern life, coined the phrase “electronic superhighway”, and celebrated these developments with a humor and whimsy that counteracts some of the darker aspects of our technological age. This book features works from throughout Paik’s five-decade career–from robots made from old TV screens to stills from his innovative video works and views of his renowned room-sized installations.
