In Search of the Castle...

1981, 9:29 min, color, sound

The Vasulkas employ imaging tools to transform physical space and alter perception. In Search of the Castle is a journey of personal, perceptual and technical transformations. Driving from a city through Southwestern landscapes, taping through Steina's mirrored globe, the Vasulkas develop the central metaphor of a search. This work traces their odyssey from naturalistic to increasingly complex, image-processed landscapes, until they arrive at an abstract electronic environment, a synthetic space transformed by technology.
