Television Meltdown by Soso Limited

Sosolimited is a crew of MIT grads turned audio visual artists – Eric Gunther, Justin Manor and John Rothenberg – with backgrounds in physics, architecture, computer science, media arts and music. They say that TV is garbage – and they want to turn that shit into gold. So they create live remixes of broadcasts using pure information to filter and direct the look and feel of their videos: deconstructing the 2008 presidential debates by using word-count as an aesthetic variable, for example. “Essentially what we’re trying to do is like take the television studio and turn up the acid,” Rothenberg says.
