In downtown Trenton, NJ, there's a major work by one of the founders of video art, Nam June Paik. Installed at what was once the public TV headquarters of the state, PBS ( 1963-2000 ) had fallen into serious disrepair. We cover its complete restoration, including visits to TV and neon repair shops specializing in the restoration of art. An interview with Nam June Paik (1932-2006) is also included.
