Blurring the lines between straight-up entertainment and conceptual video art, Experimental Half-Hour serves as a public-access platform for experimental musicians, performance artists, dancers, and comedians to showcase their work to a wider audience. Documenting and broadcasting experimental music and performance art, the bi-weekly, half-hour television segments provide a lasting record of contemporary performing arts and video culture, stimulating conceptual collaboration and innovation through the broad range of technologies—both analog and high definition, old and new—it grants its performers access to. Paying homage to cable access TV culture whilst simultaneously embracing digital, web-based broadcasting, the show, which recently uprooted its home in Portland, has relocated to LA and founded its own physical space—in the form of a mobile studio—so it can not only transmit its creative content via a TV signal, a 4G network, and wireless microwaves, but also engage more actively with the local community through curated events, art festival screenings, and mobile video sessions.
This installment of EHH, entitled “Rebuilding the Temple,” features video art from artists including Jennifer Juniper Stratford, Taryn Tomasello, Cristopher Cichocki, Pod Blotz, Sarah Rara, Johnny Woods, Peter Larsson, Dungeon Majesty, E.S.P. TV, Vitamin Wig C, and Derek Larson, culminating with live video synthesis/manipulation/performance courtesy of Afterhours, Geneva Jacuzzi, Diva, and GX Jupitter-Larsen.
