Oriental Culture, 1975
Video (color, sound); 3:40 min.
Pre-recorded tape of video feedback stills, live feedback (in which the position of the camera mirrors the monitor that the camera is scanning – both are right side up), and oscillators locked to both horizontal and vertical sync were processed through a video colorizer and simple scan processor. Images generated from purely electronic signals suggest Asian landscapes and icons, and electronic sound conveys a slow ascending tension to the landscapes.
