A Shimmering Analog Memory: Artists' films in Pixelvision
Sadie Benning, Peggy Ahwesh and the PXL-2000.
I remember seeing the Pixelvision when I was a teenager. It was nestled in next to the Commodore 64s in the Toys R Us computer and electronics section. But I couldn’t spring for its $100 price tag on my minimum-wage budget.
I forgot about it until I saw the Pixelvision sequence in Linklater’s “Slacker.” By then it was too late to find one easily, and too early to eBay one.
It wouldn’t be until 2001 that I would actually own my own camcorder. It is largely passé, if not obsolete, now. But way more hifi than the Pixelvision that I still kind of want.
My co-host Jenny Benevento just quit her job and went to Disney World. Listen to our podcast to find out why and get some inspiration to quit phoning it in and take control.
