Color my world: Chicago Video

by Lucinda Furlong

Afterimage, Oct. 1982, v. 10, no. 3, pp. 18-19

Videomaker and critic Lucinda Furlong reviews the show Chicago Video which was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City from May 13th to June 29th of 1982. At the time, Chicago was considered a hotbed of experimenting with electronic imaging tools. It was in Chicago, between 1971 and 1974 that Dan Sandin - with a background in physics and synthesized music - designed and built an image processer and later distributed free plans for low-cost kits, so, unsuprisingly, Chicago has a rich supply of video that fall into the image-processing category. Most of the videos that comprise Chicago Video also fall into this category.
