Legacy

While casually checking Facebook today, we stumbled upon a fantastic blog entitled “The Art Attack Podcast.” Essentially, the podcast teaches visitors art viewing skills in a relaxed setting while being introduced to some of Washington D.C.’s art treasures from the comfort of their own homes (computers?).

The most recent podcast talks about Nam June Paik’s Electronic Superhighway: Continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii which is located in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art. The massive work is a representation of the United States created entirely out of neon and television monitors. The podcast discusses the legacy computer art of the 1960s and 1970s has left on our world today – very relevant to our study of Five Tetrahedra! Check out The Art Attack below:
