Summary

Kapoor was one of four artists commissioned in 1998 to make a ‘TV Sculpture’ for the British television Channel 4. The concept behind the commission was to use the television set as a sculpture. Kapoor’s contribution, a seven-minute broadcast entitled Wounds and Absent Objects, evolved from experimentation with post-production digital TV equipment. Via electronic matting devices, the artist made an electronic impulse morph into pulsating vividly coloured forms.

The portfolio was printed and proofed by Adam Lowe and Adrian Lack at the Senencio Press and Permaprint in London, and published in an edition of 12.
