Woody Vasulka

Art of MemoryArtifactsIn Search of the Castle

The Vasulkas have shaped video art in terms of both developments in technology and media theory. In Art of Memory, they intersect time and visual layers by inserting documentary material of the Spanish Civil War and the Second World War in computer generated, apparently three-dimensional shape by chroma keying. As a classically trained violinist, Steina Vasulka relies on sound experiments, while Woody dedicates himself to technological developments.
