Early Video Art of Ture Sjolander

Here is an interesting and somewhat surprisingly overlooked artist, at least in the area of video art involving video synthesis dominated by American (or american based) practitioners active from the late 1960s in to the 1970s. Ture Sjolander a Swedish artist whose work Monument (1967) and Space In The Brain (1969) were amongst the earliest uses of electronic video manipulation and video synthesis. His website however is not very easy to navigate (it also contains some very strange pages) and he seems to want to almost claim the invention of video art and electronic animation (although he seems pretty tongue in cheek about the whole thing)
still very interesting stuff
