Having worked extensively in neon sculpture, Keith Sonnier introduced video to his work in the 1970s as a representation of a medium working with and against itself. Sonnier began experimenting with the formal properties of computer-generated video by using a Scanimate computer, and his work exploits feedback, amplification, and transmitted light’s tactile quality. As an artist embracing technology, Sonnier’s work challenges artistic conventions and opens new channels of communication at the cutting edge of technology.
