Starting in 1966, the two pioneering media artists Nam June Paik and Jud Yalkut began to collaborate on a series of video-based works in which images and sounds had been electronically distorted; these video-films were early examples of appropriating and manipulating mass media footage as a form of cultural criticism. Their source material included clips from Beatles concerts, television commercials, news footage, and a conference featuring President Lyndon B. Johnson. Their approach was based largely in improvisation and experimentation, with undertones of humor and irony. Paik said that this newfound medium “will enable us to shape the TV screen canvas as precisely as Leonardo, as freely as Picasso, as colorfully as Renoir.”
