Take part in a Dirty Electronics event exploring video and sound: a two-day workshop building an analogue hand-held video mixer and devising a performance-installation. A be-spoke Dirty Electronics artwork printed circuit board, beta-mash, will be designed for the event. Video with its garish colours, trash movies, celebration of cheap copies, and focus on personal as opposed to collective spaces, is seen as symbolising the 1980s. Old Greek videotapes become the starting point for the analogue processing of both image and sound. Witness the work unfold, and observe the participants make the circuits and devise a performance in what could be described as a living installation.
