About the work
Beryl Korot
American, b. 1945
Follow

An early video art pioneer, Beryl Korot is well known for her installation works that explore the relationship between analog technologies—such as the loom—and video. “Just as the spinning and gathering of wool serve as the raw material for a weave,” Korot says, “so the artist working with video selects images to serve as the basic substance of the work.” With landmark multiple-channel installation works such as Text and Commentary (1977), Korot developed new possibilities for the creation of visual narratives; in other works, she has used painting to meditate on language by inventing a coded analog grid for the Roman alphabet. In 1970 Korot co-founded Radical Software, an early publication to explore alternative communication systems.
