Ken Hakuta: My uncle Nam June Paik

Ken Hakuta describes the experience of growing up with his uncle, the artist Nam June Paik, who was at the vanguard of video, sculpture, and performance art. He shares unique insight into a large group of works by Paik, who experimented with ways to distort the images on television screens, created robots from miscellaneous found objects, and even made artwork from Hakuta’s broken childhood toys.
