YOUR TV IS WATCHING was presented as part of Tony Youngblood's Modular Art Pods and OZ Art Festival in Nashville, TN. Modular Art Pods (MAPs) is an open-source, collaborative art tunnel. MAPs as a community-driven immersive art experience, a scare-free haunted house, or an ephemeral theme park.
CONCEPT: Our cellphones, computers, credit cards, banks, and even Smart TVs are aggregating our data inconspicuously with every interaction. N&XT's installation, YOUR TV IS WATCHING, aspires to give a more literal interpretation of this reality in hopes of inspiring conversations about the consequences of that exchange in a fun, interactive environment. The installation itself is a 6ft x 10ft vintage inspired television with a live audience of 10-15 performers inside reacting to the viewing audience as they would were they watching a film. With a mid-century movie soundtrack, commercials, and announcements the aesthetic brings the audience back to the early days of TV with a sense of wonder and surprise.
