Home is an early experiment in which the Vasulkas transform ordinary household objects through analog imaging devices. With humor and a sense of spontaneous discovery, they animate everyday objects through the application of electronic effects that serve as a primer of early imaging techniques: colorizing; keying; horizontal drift of layered image planes. Apples, shoes, bottles, and teapots come to life in surreal tableaux that suggest psychedelic Magritte paintings, as the Vasulkas transform still lifes through dynamic electronic image processing.
