In Search of the Castle is an optical journey that combines Steina’s abstraction of real images and Woody’s digital effects. Taped from a car passing through the flat landscape of New Mexico, computer effects create an interesting play of movement and lines, adding a degree of tension as the rhythm of the electronic distortion intensifies.

“Encapsulated in a computer globe, the Vasulkas’ imagery of America is revealed to us as an electronic journey.”

—Marita Sturken, Steina and Woody Vasulka: Machine Media (San Francisco: San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 1996)
