Steina and Woody Statement


In this one-page text by Kitchen co-founders Steina and Woody Vasulka, the artists describe their early investigations into electronic art. They describe how they learned the principles of electronically generating and processing images and manipulating the video signal itself. They address the important role of tools and equipment such as the portapak and the sound synthesizer, and how their experimentation led to the establishment of The Kitchen as a space to show video and other electronic arts.
