This was the first program in ALL CIRCUITS ON, a series produced in collaboration with Anthology Film Archives. Exploring both institutions' archives, the series presents rarely-screened works from the early days of video art. The first program looked at early artists' experiments with television. Works in the program examined at how television and video work, presented new ways of critiquing the medium, and proposed new uses for the technology. Viewers learned how video can be used as a tool, for the freeing of information and the creation of a healthy media ecology.

EAI presented a live performance event and video screening featuring three new art collectives who re-activate the lo-fi. Cory Arcangel and Alex Galloway from Beige and Radical Software Group demonstrated the subversive genre of video game hacking. Video work by Forcefield and a live music performance from Termination Gnome galvanized obsolete analogue signal-processors and defunct electronics. With psychedelic ebullience, Paper Rad synthesized and re-staged popular material from the Internet, television, video games, and advertising. An analogous era of analogue synthesis was bridged by rarely screened video from technical pioneers of the 1960s and 70s.
