Similarly, Nam June Paik, during his first video exhibit in 1963, hung a bloody head of an ox, in his own words, to ‘get the audience in a oneness of consciousness, so they could perceive more’ . Thus, expanded cinema no longer enabled comprehensive human perception, but became an extension of human himself, functioning ‘as nothing less than the nervous system of…
