The End of Television

The End Of Television (2009) At the end of June 12th, 2009 all TV stations in the USA turned off their analog transmitters forever and switched to a digital TV signal. As the country switched to digital, The End of Television turned on it's analog transmitter and become the last remaining analog TV station in America. Using the nearly obsolete medium of analog TV, The End re-imagined the omnipresent idea of "broadcast yourself." The program consisted of 22 hours of submission from 32 artists, broadcast from 12am June 13th onward. The show began with a performance by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE's band the Histrionic Thought Experiment Cooperative (HiTEC).
