This is a still from Media Burn, a "media event" enacted by Ant Farm in San Francisco on July 4, 1975. These crazy guys drove a modified car into a wall of TVs in the spirit of liberating Americans from their TV addictions. It was a historical moment in video art and the place where our class begins. Every student is making their own video blog in the spirit of participating in media culture. Making the images or taking the images. Hi fi or lo fi. We do it all!
