Steina and Woody Vasulka: Latent Perceptions
Saturday 20 February 2010, 19:30
Tate Modern Starr Auditorium
Bankside, London SE1 9TG
Major figures in the history of video art and electronic media, the Vasulkas have contributed enormously to the evolution of digital aesthetics through a prolific body of work exploring the malleability of vision, the manipulation of electronic energy and the interrelation of sound and image.
This programme will highlight single-channel video works created in the 1970s in conjunction with a presentation by the artists about their current work.
The Vasulkas' investigations into analogue and digital processes and their development of electronic imaging tools, which began in the early 1970s, place them among the primary architects of an electronic vocabulary for image-making.
All of their work is in some way connected to a fundamental agenda: to interrogate the intrinsic properties of the machine as cultural code and the latent or overt perceptual changes that emerge.
