Daytime w. Nalepa
Daytime's glowing imagery was hand-crafted with the Rutt/Etra Video Synthesizer, an analog video instrument built in the early 70s. Like a TV from another dimension, the Rutt/Etra gives artists total control of the screen with knobs, oscillators and sound-responsive circuitry. It is a modular analog computer, programmed with patch chords.
The artists dedicate Daytime to the memory of Steve Rutt, co-inventor of the Rutt/Etra. Steve's pioneering work as an engineer and entrepreneur helped create the media culture we now live in.
