A laser beam moves constantly with a high speed and attracts our eyes to the infinite space and time. The various patterns of spaces created by lasers are dynamic, mysterious, and beautiful. Lasers show a new possibility of space and time, that is, non-linear time and space with which Paik experimented throughout his lifetime, using various media including music, television, and video.
Lasers are a high frequency lighting device used as a means of communication or information transmission that still has a great possibility of development. The laser works by Paik with which he experimented until his last moment could be called ‘post-video’ which lies in the extension of the theme that the artist pursued through video art, reorganizing space and time with the power of light and energy
