upDate: Woody Vasulka
Visiting artist, Woody Vasulka, deals in three lectures with the relationship between electronically organised sounds and images. Woody Vasulka and his wife, Steina, are regarded as protagonists of an artistic movement that, in the 1960s, examined the possibilities of generating sounds from images and images from sounds within the medium of video.
