Teleculture the Teleculture
Willoughby Sharp visited SAW Gallery in 1983. This flamboyant New Yorker was a denizen of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene before becoming a prophet of telecommunications and satellite technology. He was interviewed by David Peat for CBCTelevision. Producer Joan Woodward provided the footage to Chris. This is an early example of an experiment with repetition, rescanning and looping of video. The intent was to produce a video structure that worked like music. Interesting to fans of analogue effects.
