The vee attached to the upper-right corner of the square indicates that this is a television set with an antenna. If you take a close look at the seated figure on the screen, you can see that there is a dot at the center of the torso and one of the hands is pointing upwards, which indicates this is a Buddha statue. It is not unusual that Paik added a seated statue of Buddha in an image of television. This recalls a paragraph of the essay Paik wrote about a video synthesizer invented together with Shuya Abe. “Darma was so diligent for 9 years in sitting and meditating that he did not even to men’s room. … The accumulated shit eventually melted away his limbs and Darma become toe be loved as a Buddha without legs … this leg-less man’s wireless transmission is all what TV is about today … and in coming carless society.”
