Nam June Paik was a Korean American conceptual artist who worked with a broad range of media. He is often recognized as the frontiers-person of video art and is also recognized for coming up with the now well-known term 'electronic super highway.'
Nam June Paik may just come to mind when you think of cutting-edge contemporary art. The pioneering Korean artist is one of the most critical figures in conceptual art, which focuses on ideas rather than materials or form.
„Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.“
— Nam June Paik
