About the Artwork

Media art pioneer Nam June Paik created this work to depict his inspiration from movie 'The Birds' directed by American film director Alfred Hitchcock (1899 ~ 1980). Stuffed birds are sitting on a TV box that contains five small picture tubes showing jumbled movie sequences and a doll modelled after Hitchcock is trapped inside a birdcage. Dramatically revealing the fear and anxiety of people caused by the tension between nature and the modern civilization with his signature sense of wit, this artwork offers a glimpse of the artist's experimental approach and creativity involving various technologies.
