extracts from exhibition catalogue;
" In the mid 1960's Nam June Paik bought the first portable video kit available in New York and recorded his taxi ride to an Art Gallery where the tape was replayed.
This is often claimed to be the first video art tape.
Was it ?
The event is significant as an early demonstration of the
equipment's capabilities but is the tape itself anything other
than the documentation of a taxi ride?
Certainly one of the earliest examples of a video tape in whish the creators have consciously manipulated the electronic signals that form the picture is "TIME " by Ture Sjolander and Bror Wikstrom.
This was produced in 1965-66 and was followed in 1967 byMONUMENT , on which Sjolander collaborated with Lars Weck.
Rather than the artist 're-presenting' images, these works show a decisive stage in the video artist's ability to manipulate his medium in a manner akin to other, more traditional, art forms.
" Time " and " Monument " were broadcast on Swedish television and it is ironic that these pioneers works had, for technical reasons, to be transferred to film to facilitate their eventual broadcast."
