Nixon TV

Artist(Credit Line)/ Nam June Paik
Classification/ Installation
Dimensions / Variable
Medium / 2 TV monitors, coil, signal generator, amplifier, condenser, timer, 1-channel video, color, silent

This work is one of the Paik’s earliest television experiments. Signals from the generator are amplified by the amp; electric currents flow through the coils installed on the two monitors. When the current flow is switched between the two monitors, it distorts the electric signals on the screens, making comical images of former American president Richard Nixon. Nixon was defeated by John F. Kennedy because he failed to win a positive image in the famous TV debate in 1960. Paik created this work by witnessing the turning point in the effects of media.
