Recent work by groundbreaking artist Peter Campus presented at the Sercotel Ámister Art Hotel

The Sercotel Ámister Art Hotel presents Baruch the Blessed A (2004), a fairly recent work by pioneer artist Peter Campus (New York, 1937). In addition to his numerous single-channel works exploring the anatomy of the video signal in relation to human psychology and perception, Campus is mostly known for his early investigation of the characteristics of “live” video through closed-circuit video installations, and his elaborate sculptural works whose structural components included video cameras, projectors, and monitors. Campus studied experimental psychology at Ohio State College and film at the City College of New York. He was one of a group of artists in the mid-70s who produced work in the experimental TV labs at WGBH in Boston and WNET in New York. Campus has been recently dedicated a huge retrospective at the Jeu de Paume, Paris, consecrating his groundbreaking contribution to the field of video.
