Nam June Paik review

Anticipating the internet, as Paik did, clearly makes him a visionary. Further, with his often lighthearted works that combined electronics, engineering and what we now call IT, he pioneered the genre of video art. Some of his work was obvious but the best scintillating, foreshadowing that what he called the “electronic superhighway” would unleash a torrent of images and remake our culture.
