The Cable Project

About

The Cable Project enabled media artists to expose themselves to a variety of televisual material with hope that it would benefit their practice.

With the Cable Project I gave away cable television subscriptions to eight Toronto area media artists over the winter of 2004-2005. The purpose of this was to enable them access to current televised media, since cable tv is often regarded as an expensive luxury, or is derided as being too common.

The following artists were chosen:

Jeremy Bailey, Kotama Bouabane, Keith Cole, Dave Dyment, Heather Keung, Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Zoe Stonyk & Lex Vaughn

with thanks to

Rogers Cable • The Ontario Arts Council



The Cable Committee

The Cable Committee

I struck a ‘cable committee’ to help me decide which artists should receive cable television. This committee consisted of Cecilia Berkovic, Sarah Hollenberg, Day Milman, Amish Morrell, and Fedora Romita

Louis Marrone conducted interviews with four of the artists and myself, in November and December 2004.
