Electronic Fables

Nam June Paik and Jud Yalkut
1965-71, 1992, 10 min, color, sound, 16 mm film on video

Part of a restored collection of rare early works by Nam June Paik, Electronic Fables is an example of Paik's early improvisations and experiments with electronic image manipulation, prior to his invention of the Paik/Abe Video Synthesizer. This piece also makes use of anecdotes by John Cage and other influential artists and cultural figures.
