An interview with Chris King

, 25 July 2013

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.**
