The TELEVISION TEST PATTERN is an outstanding example of the Fluxus Indians' 
uncanny ability to anticipate future technological developments.
TV Test Pattern During one of their annual New Year Brainstorming Sessions, the Fluxus Indians thought up the idea of television--nearly 400 years before it was invented. Even more remarkably, the Fluxus Indians used a technique called EXTENDED BRAINSTORMING to identify many of the ancillary devices and requirements for a television system--such as a visual TEST PATTERN for fine-tuning the receiver.
The Fluxus Indian Television Test Pattern is similar to test patterns actually used by TV stations during the early years of television.
