“Paik’s possibly most famous video work was produced as a gap-filler for an empty wall in his fourth show in the Galeria Bonino, New York. Shortly before the opening, he hit upon the idea of making a TV viewer out of an antique Buddha statue once purchased as an investment. The subsequent addition of a video camera meant the Buddha now watched his videotaped image on the screen opposite – past and present gaze upon each other in an encounter between Oriental deity and Western media.
During the ‘Projekt ‘74’ exhibition in Cologne, Paik took the Buddha’s place in his recent creation, suggesting the implicit antithesis between transcendentalism and technology was equally present in his own personality.” - Source
Demoscene production from 1992 for the Commodore Amiga by Leeds Spreading Division (LSD). The demo captured the style of visuals that would have been played at raves of the time, and amazingly, this 30 minute demo fitted two floppy disks (the demo is approx. 1.4MB, less than two full size Tumblr gifs).
Here is a video of the complete demo - it will not be for everyone and it is very repetitive, but it certainly is a memorable production for it’s time:
A more authentic viewing would be with an emulator, and you can download the original files at Pouet here
