Night Flight - The Video Artist (Video Synthesis)
One of Night Flight's most revered segments returns on Night Flight Plus this weekend. This episode of The Video Artist follows Stephen Beck, who creates abstract analog visuals with his direct video synthesizer. Beck was an inventor, video artist and writer who was a pioneer in the video synthesis medium. "My interest is using the video synthesizer as a compositional tool," he says as he walks Night Flight through his process. His hallucinatory and beautifully surreal videos stand up to anything you see today, it's not surprising his work is collected by the MOMA and other major institutions.
