Create kaleidoscopic collages inspired by the three-dimensional images made as you “draw” with magnets on old-fashioned TV screens. Inspired by Nam June Paik’s Magnet TV artworks and artists in the Cool Medium exhibition.
Caution, don’t experiment with magnets on your TVs or monitors at home!

Cool Medium artist Alan Shields’s work involved “all kinds of things that boggled [his] mind.” Let’s follow his lead and create woven and stitched psychedelic paper sculptures that defy space and time.
