This digital interactive provides two paths to explore Nam June Paik’s Zen for Film. The first highlights a selected history of the artwork’s presentation and documentation and provides information on the artist and Fluxus. The second explores a number of related artworks that can be viewed as potential inspirations, antecedents, and contemporaries. The artworks are linked and can be filtered by conceptual associations—boredom, chance, materiality, nothingness, silence, time, trace—that correspond to a viewer’s experience of Zen for Film.

This project was featured in the Zen for Film exhibition held at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery September 18, 2015–February 21, 2016.
