Introduction Written by Rebekkah Palov
Imagine imagining a poetics, not the one you were trained in, not one as yet known, but an emergent grammar, vocabulary, and syntax being coaxed out of new technologies, technologies of electric energy flows, and the machines you might build to dialog with them. Then how to write the codex using these tools, what would it look like, how would it move us, where would you start.
The Division of Expanded Media is happy to present the exhibition POINT ZERO, featuring video artworks by the pioneering media artist Woody Vasulka (1937-2019). The exhibition investigates Woody’s research and discoveries in electronic moving-image, featuring original works and contemporary interpretations. We look forward to having you join us for this very special all-video exhibition, featuring multi-channel and single-channel video and sound. The exhibition ran from September 11 – October 14, 2020.
