electronic art

Discipline: Art

(1950s- )

Related to kinetic art, this is a technique whereby the artist develops abstract patterns on screens using cathode rays or oscilloscopes.

The American artist BEN F LAPOSKY has worked in this area since the 1950s, and the method has also been exploited by the Korean artist NAM JUNE PAIK in his use of several television sets and human performers, with extreme distortion of images.
