Nam June Paik Pt 7 - Video Garden 1974

Presented at the 'documenta 6' in Kassel, Paik's first large-scale installation 'TV-Garden' is made up by some thirty television sets lying on the floor among a large number of tropical plants. The furiously edited 'Global Groove' video playing on the screens of the TV sets flickers and flashes through the mesh of green. Ambivalent like most of Paik's works, this one leaves open the question of whether we are dealing with a symbiosis of nature and technology, or whether the new media are leading us back into the jungle with their disordered mass of rampant images.
