The Emergence of Video Processing Tools presents stories of the  development of early video tools and systems designed and built by  artists and technologists during the late 1960s and ’70s. Split over two volumes, the contributors examine the intersection of art and science and look at collaborations among inventors, designers, and artists trying to create new tools to  capture and manipulate images in revolutionary ways. The contributors  include “video pioneers,” who have been active  since the  emergence of the aesthetic, and technologists, who continue to design,  build, and hack media tools. The book also looks at contemporary toolmakers and the relationship between  these new tools and the past. Video and media production is a growing  area of interest in art and this collection will be an indispensable  guide to its origins and its  future.
