EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION

EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION CENTER Video History: Making Connections Conference (October 16-18, 1998) Interviews Conducted by Kathy High - 8 - CONRAD: I had a show… Where the heck did I have a show? Someplace like the Kitchen or something like that. I showed the movies at Millennium. (High: Uh-huh) I had a twenty-movie show, that was all big painted panels that I put up, like a huge gallery show. Then I went to Ivan Carp(?). He was a big dealer at the time. I said, “So, is this art?” ’Cause I didn’t know (laughs) anything about art at that time. And he said, “What I’m interested in is a legible— is an international video— is an international visual iconography. And these don’t offer that. They look like Robert Ryman’s paintings anyway,” which— there was some stuff he was doing at the time; it didn’t really connect to me. Too bad. But real video? I actually was invited to teach video up at Buffalo before I had really made any video to speak of at all. I never had access to any gear. When I moved up there, I was eager to get my hands on the gear. But they didn’t have a microphone. Only cameras. There was no microphone. And so I had to use… They did have a PortaPak. HIGH: That was half-inch reel-to-reel? CONRAD: Half-inch reel-to-reel stuff, yeah. It was fun. And that’s the first stuff I did, was black and white half-inch reel-to-reel. It was about ’75. ’76? It was 1976. HIGH: What was that tape like? Or those tapes.

EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION CENTER Video History: Making Connections Conference (October 16-18, 1998) Interviews Conducted by Kathy High - 9 - CONRAD: Oh. Well… There were tapes where I was punishing the camera. I was complaining about the camera, because it wasn’t doing its job correctly! (laughs) And I thought it would fun to sort of leave the viewer out and do some… It was performance work, in that way. It was artificial and contrived—and embarrassing, which I liked about it. Very embarrassing. Meanwhile, the person who’d invited me there, Woody Vasulka, went back to his loft, where he had color cameras and computers and imaging processing gear, microphones. (laughs) Steina and Woody let me borrow a color camera one day. (laughs) HIGH: We know what happened. CONRAD: Well, I made a tape then. I tried to make a tape. That’s how I got in. It was really… It was wonderful. HIGH: So tell me, this work sounds different from the film work you were doing at the time. CONRAD: Well… HIGH: Is it different? Or was it… How so?
