Conversion comments on the transition to digital broadcast television through a number of found and made objects. The painting of “Broadcast Colors Bars” (Bars and Tones) is presented as the analog analogy for both broadcasting and a classical representation of the gallery. The TV-set and projector are employed to note the transmission from established practices to modern and more contemporary practices.
Starting with the painting of broadcast color bars, an analog video camera first captures and transmits a video feed (via wireless feed) to the TV-set. Then a web webcam which hangs above the TV-set captures and digitizes the signal. The signal is feed into a computer with software that reorganizes the video signal into an abstract color projection.
