Norman White

Norman White is one of the most influential media artists in the field. He produced humorous and beautiful work and also taught hundreds of artists in the 70s and 80s. However, media art does not cover the realm of White's work: his oeuvre includes everything from paintings to light murals and interactive robotics.
