    Joan Truckenbrod, (born 1945 in Greensboro, North Carolina, USA) is known for her work in digital art, and is credited as being one of the earliest pioneers of digital art in the 1960’s. She uses sculptural forms in video to explore “the simultaneous experience of multiple realities that is evoked through ritual.”[3]An essential aspect of her artwork is “making things by hand, integrating hand construction with the electronic imagery of video”.
