Steina in Collecting Digital Art exhibition

Currently on show as part of a group exhibition titled Collecting Digital Art, Steina’s work Violin Power can be viewed at the Thoma Foundation in Santa Fe, New Mexico. With exhibitions that rotate quarterly, the foundation’s ongoing show includes pieces by Guillermo Galindo, Beryl Korot, Brigitte Kowanz, Vera Molnar, Laura Splan and Steina. Made over the course of eight years in the 1970s, Violin Power is a black-and-white analog video (since transferred to digital) that runs for about 10 minutes. The video shows clips of performances by Steina Vasulka, who trained as a violinist, performing music from different times and places around New York City and Buffalo. She used analog editing techniques that allowed her to manipulate a TV monitor’s scan lines and transmute them into audio signals that vibrate with the playing of the violin. It stands as a document of Steina’s early performances as well as an experimental work in translating sound as image. The piece is in a section of the show called Code as Form, which focuses on imagery produced from various types of data.
