Electronic Moon 2 / 전자 달 2

Single-channel Video
Paik produced "Electronic Moon No. 2" in cooperation with Jud Yalkut. This "video-film" begins with black and white images of the moon reflected on water, along with the atmospheric accompaniment of Debussy's "Clair de Lune." The wavering surface of water looks like a TV monitor on which electronic lines are flowing. These black and white images are then changed into colorful images of the moon turning into artificial light, which Paik created by manipulating scanning lines of the television screen. Paik and Yalkut presented various images of the moon, using conventional expressions related to the moon, such as a human face, a woman's breast, and so on.
