Nam June Paik was a Korean American visionary artist, thinker and innovator who was born in 1932 and died in 2006. He worked with a variety of media and is considered to be the founder of video art. His groundbreaking use of video technology blurred past distinctions between science, fine art, and popular culture to create a new visual language. His interest in exploring the human condition through the lens of technology and science has created a far-reaching legacy that may be seen in broad recognition of new media art and the growing numbers of subsequent generations of artists who now use various forms of technology in their work.
