Born in 1942. Pioneering figure in the field of electronic visualization. Came to video and computers in the 1970s with a background in physics, and was instrumental in the development of imaging devices that could be made accessible to artists for their own duplication and use. In 1973 he built the Sandin Image Processor (I.P.), a synthesizer that electronically alters video images and explores the dynamics of color.
His early interest in real-time computer graphics/video image processing and interactive computing environments motivated his pioneering work in video synthesizers and continues to influence his research interests. Sandin's computer/video art has been exhibited at conferences and museums worldwide including the inaugural collection of video art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
