A Tribute to Nam June Paik

Video Portrait of a Man Who Won't Sit Still

1982, 27:58 min, color, sound

With irreverent good humor, this affectionate homage to artist Nam June Paik uses Paik's own rapid-fire editing and dizzying collage techniques to evoke his wide-ranging influence in video and contemporary art. Excerpts from Paik's tapes and installations are intercut with appearances by Charlotte Moorman and John Cage, among others. Musician Peter Gordon reinterprets Paik's signature Devil with a Blue Dress On, while video artist Shalom Gorewitz re-edits footage from his tapes and performances, keeping with Paik's credo that art is never static.

With: Nam June Paik, Charlotte Moorman, John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, Howard Wise, John Hanhardt. Commentary: Russell Connor. Editor: John Zieman. "Tribute To Paik" by Shalom Gorewitz.
