Beryl Korot: "Radical Software" :
Nam June Paik «McLuhan Caged (in Electronic Art II)»
'Marshall McLuhan's distorted face in Paik's 'McLuhan Caged' videotape (1967)'
Four one-man Paik shows ran in the Galleria Bonino between 1965 and 1974. For 'Electronic Art II' (1968), Paik manipulated TV pictures. These distortions – illustrated here by catalogue photos – were produced by moving magnets across the cathode ray tube or by demagnetization effected by a ‘degausser’.
