Nam June Paik: the avant-garde artist credited with inventing video art in the 1960s

The Korean-born avant-garde artist, Nam June Paik, introduced the world to video art in the 1960’s and collaborated with the Fluxus art movement with folks like John Cage and Charlotte Moorman. He invented video art by combining multiple TV screens with sculpture, music and live performers. He also coined the term “Electronic Super Highway” years before the information superhighway was invented.  ~ Toshi Hoo and Mercury News
