Vostell is a pioneer of Fluxus, Happening, and video art. Sun in Your Head applies the principle of Dé-coll/age to the form of montage and is considered the first artistic work that uses recorded television images. The material, in particular news broadcasts, are accompanied by an alarm sound and exhibit targeted electromagnetical disturbances that question their truth and the role of the media. Even if Vostell first filmed using 16 mm film and then assembled a video version in 1967, he developed a video aesthetic avant la lettre.
