From February 19 to March 2, 2013, Eyebeam alumnus Benton C Bainbridge made video portraiture of Eyebeam visitors using old-school gear. Lit by video projection, sitters were “painted” using hacked wedding video mixers and TiVos. Past results of Bainbridge’s project have been compared to the Andy Warhol film portraits in Chelsea Girls. The analog portraits were recorded straight to VHS T-5 tapes. Each T-5 was added to a stack of tapes that anyone could pop into a VCR to play.
