A fully illustrated catalog on the celebrated progenitor of video art, Nam June Paik (1932–2006). Brings together a host of scholars, artists, and Paik’s own collaborators to illuminate the work of this innovative artist. Features never-before-published primary sources that highlight Paik’s prescient attitude towards the integration of increasingly indispensable technologies into modern life. Korean-born, Paik was a major influence on late twentieth-century art and continues to inspire a new generation of artists. Paik is credited with an early usage (1974) of the term "electronic super highway."
