Open VHS Research Lab
The Open VHS Workshop aims to use physical tape editing as a remedy to recursive, estranged appropriation. It is both a hardware hacking workshop and an exercise in conceptual thinking about 'true' radical electronic openness. Participants will be part of a creative endeavor in which VHS cassettes are physically sliced and taped to provide glitches particular to the medium. Subjects such as copyright and distribution in connection to material culture will be considered and discussed in the process. Also not unimportant, the workshop is fun!
