Audio/visual junkie Chris King works with analogue television as a medium with which to draw. Nanoseconds apart, hundreds of manipulated lines criss cross across screens to display a psychedelic spectrum of RBG colours bent from angular fixes. Rad waves of energy that can slow down in silence to a series of single thick pink lines on a negative backdrop or pump-up to experimental electronic music in multimedia performances.
On camera, the London-based artist talks on where his love for early broadcast technology began, messes with aqnb’s footage and breaks down 1980s hardware’s relevance for computer generated imagery.**
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
