19 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo developed into what was perhaps the most influential school for media arts in the twentieth century. Teaching there under the leadership of founder Gerald O'Grady were the (since canonized) structuralist, avant-garde film-makers Hollis Frampton, Tony Conrad, and Paul Sharits, documentary film-maker James Blue, video artists Steina and Woody Vasulka, and media artist Peter Weibel."--Jacket

Steina and Woody Vasulka by Steina Vasulka( Visual )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here the Vasulkas continue to develop the imaging potential of artist-designed electronic devices, as they formally analyze and deconstruct the inherent materiality of video. In Heraldic View, an oscillator-generated pattern drifts over a camera image of bricks and stone, the patterns modulated by sharp bursts of voltage generated by an audio synthesizer. 1-2-3-4 is an exercise in animating numbers, using four cameras and a multikeyer to re-order and layer the image planes. Soundsize continues the Vasulkas' investigation into the relationship of sound and image. Here a pattern of dots is modulated by sounds generated from a synthesizer, changing size and shape in a visual manifestation of electronic sound. In Telc, a Rutt/Etra Scan Processor is used to transform portapak images from a trip to a town in Southern Bohemia. Like faded memories, images of the landscape and people are sculpted and abstracted, as the energy of the image is translated into electronic scan lines."

Critical mass by Meridel Rubenstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 'Critical Mass' we have brought photography, video and text together to examine the forces of domesticity and history that led to the creation of the first atomic bomb. The catalyst for this five year collaborative work, the image/text classes we taught at San Francisco State University in 1986-7, led us to extend our collaboration into our art. As the primary artists on this project, we asked Steina and Woody Vasulka to help us expand our imagery into video. As individual artists, all of us had explored imagery and ideas about place, culture, landscape, myth and history. ... This work is about the impact of large historic events on ordinary people. " - introduction by Meridel Rubenstein and Ellen Zweig

Surveying the first decade : video art and alternative media in the U.S( Visual )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 5 of a program presenting the first decade of a comprehensive history of experimental and independent video. In this anthology artists explore video as an electronic material, and they are interested in the process of translating energy and time into waveforms, frequencies, voltages, and finally into video and audio images. The video pieces are documents of dialogues with tools or real-time performances of tools where a video signal is routed through an interface of modifiable electronic instruments

Surveying the first decade : video art and alternative media in the U.S( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part 6 of a program presenting the first decade of a comprehensive history of experimental and independent video. Generated by artists, public access cable producers, and video collectives, this video anthology marks the efforts of cultural activists to redefine the asymmetrical relationship between transmission and reception, the production and consumption of American television. The introduction of the portapak in the politically-charged late '60s inspired proposals for a radically decentralized information system. By the mid-70's there existed a burgeoning alternative media network of public access cable channels, media art centers, public television stations and a range of independent venues that included pirate TV, media laboratories, and library video programs
Selected works, I by Gary Hill( Visual )

5 editions published between 1974 and 2003 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This program presents the Vasulkas' early formal experimentations with analog image processing and their investigations of multiple camera set-ups, and keyers to articulate spatial, temporal and sound/image manipulation. Solo For 3 is a didactic yet playful exercise in which three cameras were trained on three different images of the number three. Image planes are layered, arranged and sequenced; the result is a multifaceted choreography of numbers. Reminiscence is an otherworldly record of a Portapak walk through a farmhouse in Moravia, the site of Woody Vasulka's youth, as seen through the transformative effects of the Rutt/Etra Scan Processor. Images become eerily sculptural, fading in and out of abstraction, as if in evocation of memory. Soundgated Images is an early example of the Vasulkas' ongoing explorations of interfacing modes of simultaneously generated sound and image, in which abstract, processed images are transposed as electronic sounds. Noisefields is an important example of these early experiments, a visualization of the materiality of the electronic signal and its energy. Colorized video noise (or snow) is keyed through a circle, producing a rich static sound that is modulated by the energy content of the video."

Vasulka and his imager collaborate to produce intricate checkerboard patterns. An image of a hand passing over a ball turns into pure form. A shot of a man leaning against an oven is manipulated, compressed and multiplied. The artist states: "The machine is responsible for much of this work and the artist."
The Vasulkas : participation( Visual )

Participation represents the Vasulka's experience of the New York downtown scene in the late 1960s and early '70s. In this fascinating portrait of wildly creative people, places and times, the artists use the early Portapak video system to document, among others, Don Cherry performing in Washington Square, Warhol Superstars on stage, and Jimi Hendrix in concert. This pioneering video document is a free-form time capsule of an era
