Woody Vasulka Characteristics
Trained at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Woody Vasulka emigrated from his native Czechoslovakia to New York City with his wife Steina in 1965, and worked as a film editor and designer before becoming involved in video in 1969. Vasulka has worked extensively designing systems for computer controlled video, successfully building in 1976 a personal imaging facility called "The Vasulka Imaging System." Running throughout Woody Vasulka's work is the persistent study of the technological behavior of the media, creating systems that capture technology in self-reflecting metaphors.
