ETC: Experimental Television Center 1969-2009 is a compilation of groundbreaking electronic media work by 100 artists who have worked in the Center's Residency Program during the last 40 years.
The collection offers a look at the evolution of the unique artist-designed sound and image tools that are the hallmark of the Center's studio and provides a view into the constantly changing artistic processes and practices that have shaped the work over the years. Video art began to develop in the late 1960s, with the introduction of the new portable video tools. While many artists used the technology to document and have voice in social and political issues, others collaborated with the technologists to design instruments that created imagery never before seen.
ETC remains dedicated to the creation of video and digital instruments in the service of creative visual and sonic investigation by artists from around the world.
