R.I.P. Nam Jun Paik

The seminal video artist Nam Jun Paik is dead at the age of 74. He was the first artist to use video as a serious medium, not only creating films and performances, but incorporating television sets and other elements to make installations and sculptures. He frequently collaborated with cellist Charlotte Moorman (seen here with Paik in "TV Bra"). Check out his amazing work at the official website.
