Teletext Art Festival in der ARD

Teletext Art

Die ARD zeigt vom 16. August bis 16. September eine internationale Teletext-Kunstausstellung, die Arbeiten sind auf Seite 770 und offline in der Galerie Pflüger68 zu sehen, ein paar Artworks gibt's online auf der Seite der finnischen Teletext-Künstler FixC. Ich bin ja immer für mehr Kunst mit Retrotech-Kram und ollen Gadgets!

Teletext ArtTeletext, first invented some 30 years ago, utilizes the “vertical blanking interval” lines that together form the dark band dividing pictures horizontally on the television screen. Technically it has remained almost unchanged until recently when TV became digital. Teletext being an amazing success story still attracts millions of visitors daily for the latest news headlines, weather reports or sports results.

The potential of Teletext as an tool for artistic expression has not yet been fully discovered though the aesthetics of Teletext have slowly creeped in to the most fashionable street ware, graffiti and fine art. Is the next big word in intellectual small talk of the hip, rich and famous going to be teletextualism? Time will show, but since it happens The International Teletext Art Festival gives the possibility to the ARD Text users to decide for themselves.
