"Vital Signals: Early Japanese Video Art"

An educational anthology compromised of video installations, technical experiments, collages, conceptual performances, and excerpts, from prominent Japanese video artists during the 1960s and 1970s – curated by the Yokohama Museum of Art.

Publishers Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) state the intended purpose behind this retrospective catalogue is to showcase the cultural relevance of the Japanese scene at the time; an artistic endeavour they believe to be overlooked in comparison to the video art scenes prevalent in Europe, Canada, and the United States of America.
