This is the First Television Set in the World
The Baird Televisor, 1928 . An early
experimental and demonstration Baird-type
television receiver with 30 lines, and Nipkow
disc which turned with a speed of 750 rpm
producing 12 1/2 pictures per second. The motor
still runs on a standard 18-volt battery. A
spectacular demonstration model of the birth of

1939 RCA Transparent TRK-12 Television at the World's Fair
Many people had their first look at television at the 1939 World's Fair in New York. RCA had a number of TRK-12 televisions on display in their impressive exhibit hall that was shaped like a Vacuum Tube. The centerpiece was the Phantom TRK-12 shown above, whose cabinet was made of transparent Lucite. Having the transparent casing convinced skeptics that TV really worked and wasn't all smoke-and-mirrors. The TRK-12 had the CRT facing straight up, and the screen was watched by looking into a mirror.
The TK-40 and its modified successor, the TK-41, were the first television cameras able to broadcast live color images. Beginning with the "Colgate Comedy Hour" on 11/22/53 these camera were in wide use at TV network and affiliate studios, as well as independent TV production facilities through the 1960's.

Wolf Vostell was the first artist in art history
to integrate a television set into a work of art.
This installation was created in 1958 under the
title Cycle Black Room/Deutscher Ausblick
("German view") is now part of the collection of
the art museum Berlinische Galerie in Berlin.
Early works with television sets are
Transmigracion I-III from 1958 and Elektronischer
De-coll/age Happening Raum3, (E.D.H.R),
("Electronic De-coll/age Happening Room"), an
Installation, from 1968.
Wolf Vostell Dé-coll/ages From 1958
on Sculpture with TV
Vostell's large-scale happening 9 Nein Décollagen
(9 No Dé-coll/ages) took place on 14 September
1963 in nine different locations in Wuppertal,
and was organized by the Galerie Parnass. The
audience was ferried by bus from location to
location, including a cinema that screened Sun in
Your Head while people lay on the floor. The film
transfers to the moving image Vostells principle
of Décollage. While up to then Vostell had
altered TV pictures as they were being broadcast,
he was now able to compose the temporal sequence.
Since no video equipment was available in 1963,
Vostell instructed camera-man Edo Jansen to film
distorted TV images off the TV screen. The film
was re-edited and copied to video in 1967.

"In a startling collusion of form and content,
Jonas constructs a theater of female identity by
deconstructing representations of the female body
and the technology of video. Using an interrupted
electronic signal -- or "vertical roll" -- as a
dynamic formal device, she dislocates space,
re-framing and fracturing the image."

The time-lag of eight seconds is the outer limit
of the neurophysiological short-term memory that
forms an immediate part of our present perception
and affects this from within. If you see your
behavior eight seconds ago presented on a video
monitor from outside you will probably
therefore not recognize the distance in time but
tend to identify your current perception and
current behavior with the state eight seconds
earlier. Since this leads to inconsistent
impressions which you then respond to, you get
caught up in a feedback loop. You feel trapped in
a state of observation, in which your
self-observation is subject to some outside
visible control. In this manner, you as the
viewer experience yourself as part of a social
group of observed observers instead of, as in
the traditional view of art, standing arrested in
individual contemplation before an auratic
Dan Graham Time Delay Room 1974 video camera,
video taper, video monitors, mirror
Dan Graham Body Press Film installation of two
synchronized silent 16mm-film projections, color,
8'. Two filmmakers stand within a surrounding
and completely mirrorized cylinder, body trunk
stationary, hands holding and pressing a camera's
back-end flush to, while slowly rotating it
about, the surface cylin-der of their individual
bodies. One rotation circumscribes the body's
contour, spiralling slightly upward with the next
turn. With successive rotations, the body surface
areas are completely covered as a template by the
back of the camera(s) until eye-level (view
through camera's eyes) is reached then a reverse
mapping downward begins until the original
starting point is reached. The rotations are at a
correlated speed when each camera is rotated to
each body's rear it is then facing and film-ing
the other where they are exchanged so the
camera's identity changes hands and each
performer is handling a new camera. The cameras
are of different size and mass. In the process,
the performers are to concentrate on the
coexistent, simultaneous identity of both
camera's describing them and their body. (The
camera may/or may not be read as an extension of
the body's identity.) Optically, the two cameras
film the Image reflected on the mirror which is
the same surface as the box (and lens) of the
cam-era's five visible sides, the body of the
performer, and (possibly) his eyes on the mirror
(In projection what is seen by the
spectator). The camera's angle of
orientation/view of the area of the mirror's
reflective image is determined by the placement
of the cam-era on the body contour at a given
moment. (The camera might be pressed against the
ehest but such an upward angle shows head and
eyes). To the spectator the camera's optical
vantage is the skin. (An exception is when the
performer's eyes are also seen reflected or the
cameras are seen filming the other). The
performer's musculature is 'seen' pressing into
the surface of the body (pulling inside out). At
the same time, kinesthetically, the handling of
the camera can be 'felt', by the spectator, as
surfacetension, as the hidden side of the camera
presses and slides against the skin it cov-ers at
a particular moment. The films are projected at
the same time on two loop projectors, very large
size on two opposite, but very close, room walls.
A member of the audience (man or woman) might
identify with one image or the other from the
same camera or can identify with one body or the
other, shifting their view each time to face the
other screen when the cameras are exchanged.

The boundary between life and death is a strong
theme that runs through some of his work, notably
Heaven and Earth (1992). A white column rises
from the floor to the ceiling, divided in the
middle by two television screens that face each
other. The lower screen shows a close-up image of
a new-born baby, only days old while the upper
screen shows a close-up image of an old woman,
hospitalized and in the last week of her life.
The glass screens of the television monitors
allow both of the images to be reflected in the
other birth and death infuse each other. The
monitors are exposed cathode ray tubes, attached
to the columns only by four thin metal bars. This
exposure of the fragile technology comes across
as a strong metaphor for the fragility of human
body and was a deliberate conceptual link that
Viola aimed to present. --Ashley Rawlings (2006)
