About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
Nam June Paik initially saw computers as an excellent medium for generating random patterns to simulate the semi-improvised nature of his Fluxus works. Though at times frustrating, Paik explored and stressed the absurdities of having to create this ‘chaos’ through a series of logical steps, as machines cannot use what we’d call common sense. In a text in 1974, Paik wrote that he wanted to make a piece expressing how ‘It rains in my computer as it rains in my heart’. In this piece, to express a very similar idea, Paik has chosen to write the statement by hand in watercolours on paper, expressing the emotions of technology in a human form.

Pioneering the use of video and TV in art, Paik’s artistic practice crossed disciplines, and has had a profound influence on contemporary art and culture.
