Exhibition

Bending of faces, voices and bodies: video selection, April 2019, Lenka Dolanová

Bad (Steina, 1979, barva, zvuk 2:14 min., )

Voice Windows (Steina a Woody, ve spolupráci s Joan La Barbarou, 1986, barva, zvuk 8:10 min.)

Warp (Steina, 2000, 4:30 min., barva, zvuk)

The relationship between picture and sound, as well as live, performative aspect of using the video signal, was by Vasulkas seen as a key aspects of their work. To include the sound was natural: Steina studied violin and Woody was a member of the music band back in Brno where he played the trumpet. Already their first experiments with audio synthesizer revealed that the electronic signal can trigger direct visual analogy, and this deeply influenced their approach to image and sound. Since late 1960s in collaboration with engineers, they started to develop video synthesizers, directly inspired by audio synthesizers. Steina experimented with the principle of "playing the images" in real time her entire life and she developed various, often self-constructed tools.
