If there is 'no friend', then how could I call you my friends, my friends? By what right? How could you take me seriously? If I call you my friends, my friends, if I call you, my friends, how dare I add, to you, that there is no friend?

Leonardo Electronic Almanac in collaboration with FACT (Foundation for Art Creative Technology) and following an exhibition organized by FACT and Tate Liverpool on Nam June Paik announces a special issue titled: Far and Wide: Nam June Paik. This issue explores the role of Nam June Paik in shaping the future vision of contemporary new media approaches, experimentation with emerging technology, aesthetics and conceptualizations.
Nam June Paik (1932-2006) changed the very idea of what making art might look like. An artist, philosopher, performer and composer (widely considered to be the first video artist), Paik was a true visionary whose work is defined by collaborations with other innovative artists and experimentation with emerging technology.
