While it often radically refigured or scrambled its materials, the work of Paik and Vostell was predicated on and tethered to the sign system of television as a set of manufactured and broadcast givens--conditions emblematized by the recourse of both artists to devices (Vostell termed them "oscillographs") that recoded TV signals into other visual or sonic forms.
Thus, The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America described the experiments conducted at American Steel and Wire Company with the help of oscillographs, some concert pianists being asked to try and change the timbre with the help of the touch: each test resulted in a change in the intensity of the ensuing piano sound (White 1930: 357-365).
In 1976, he graduated with honours from the Faculty of Automation of the Vilnius Civil Engineering Institute (now Gediminas Technical University), and in 1981 he graduated from the VISI Day Radio Apparatus Technological Postgraduate Department and defended his thesis for a candidate of technical sciences (in 1993, this was recognized as a doctoral degree), entitled "Investi gation of Symmetrical Delay Deflection Systems for Precision Wide-Band Oscillographs".
