Nam June Paik's TV Cello

When I first saw this image a while ago I needed to know more about the artist who created this unique and incredible TV Cello. It turns out that it was involved in a sort of performance art piece that was created by the artist Nam June Paik and classical cellist Charlotte Moorman.

From Wikipedia: "In 1964, Paik moved to New York, and began working with classical cellist Charlotte Moorman, to combine his video, music, and performance. In the work TV Cello, the pair stacked televisions on top one another, so that they formed the shape of an actual cello. When Moorman drew her bow across the "cello," images of both her playing, and images of other cellists playing appeared on the screens."
