How do works of art endure over time, facing aging materials and changing interpretations of their meaning? How do decay, technological obsolescence, and the blending of old and new media affect what an artwork is and can become? How can changeable artworks encourage us to rethink our assumptions of a work of art as fixed or static? Revisions—Zen for Film explores these questions through Zen for Film, one of the most evocative artworks by the Korean-American artist Nam June Paik (1932–2006).
