Subject and Association DescriptionThe Vasulkas send examples from four experimental video pieces as a Grant Report to NYSCA for 73-74. “Vocabulary” is video manipulation of hands interacting with an object (silent). In “1-2-3-4” computer-generated digits interact in sequences on fluctuating background. “Noise Fields…” is an experiment with Rutt/Etra video synthesizer to unite sound and (abstract) image. “Explanation” features a dancing, morphing grid.
