Re: [Yasmin_discussions] artists and atoms: fission and fusion

Hi Jean-Pierre,
We experience telematics on daily basis (the computer screen)...

Nam June Paik made the video "Buddha" (1976-78), that is a sculpture of
Buddha sitting in a posture of meditation opposite a closed-circuit
television image of him. The video creates endless body reflections by means
of speed-of-light technology, and unites the TV image with the physical
body. In his work "Buddha Reincarnated" (1994), Paik upgraded the earlier
work with Buddha meditating opposite a computer screen.

The meditation does not take place through a direct observation but through
the electronic interface of a telephone, computer and modem. Buddha's body
is intertwined with electronic components that symbolize his incarnation to
a cyborg that catches his compressed surroundings by means of his
super-positioned electronic senses. The physical world and our bodies have
undergone transformation and compression into data distributed in
cyberspace. The span of human arms and consciousness is greatly expanded by
means of electromagnetic waves of limitless transmission range.

Jean-Pierre,

Could you explain the telematics idea a little more? Would this be taking
data from experiments and translating it into visual or audio output? I'm
intrigued...
