Kota Ezawa, Choco Drink TV, 2012, mixed media, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 2012, Kota Ezawa, Gift of the artist, 2013.35
Kota Ezawa made this playful mechanical television in homage to his one-time teacher, Nam June Paik, and presented it during the museum's 2012 celebration of Paik's birthday. Turning the wooden spoons changes the "channel," one scene giving way to the next. It is a modest gesture invoking Paik's presence and his influence on television, on Ezawa himself, and on contemporary art.
