CRACKED RAY TUBE
Cracked Ray Tube is a collaborative realtime installation and performance project with Kyle Evans that breaks and disrupts the interfaces of analog televisions and computer monitors through hybridized analog and digital systems to produce flashing, screeching, wobbulating, self-generated electronic noise and video.
The project is heavily influenced by the Chicago Dirty New Media scene, and was created under the COPY-IT-RIGHT philosophy, with plans for all of our custom hardware shared online in PDFs and taught in workshops.
Containing the theory and conceptual grounding of the project, "Cracking Ray Tubes: Reanimating Analog Video in a Digital Context" was published in the 2014 Leonardo Music Journal.
