Following the Vasulkas’ effort to build their own computer imager, Steina explains how the video processor works, digitizing the image, inserting color, reassigning value, density, and texture to specific areas of the video image. The constant experimentation and development of technological tools yields an incredible range of possible image manipulations. Emerging as a subtext of the video is the Vasulkas’ struggle to identify and define the programming languages necessary to creatively engage and alter existing technology.
