Revolution of the Eye explored the symbiotic relationship between avante-garde art and network television during its formative years between the 1940s and 1970. Published by Yale University Press, the book is a companion piece to a travelling exhibition of the same name.

The book mixes the stark black-and-white of early television with the bright hues of Pop Art and Psychedelia, carrying over the exhibition's stacked typography to chapter openers that vibrate with color.

The book closes with a timeline that contextualizes art, television, and cultural benchmarks.
