Today's episode of Boing Boing Video is an excerpt from Concrete TV, a long-running NYC public access show and video art project that remixes vintage television, movie, and "found video" clips in a non-narrative collage form. The resulting remixes are set to music, and create an experience that is alternately hypnotic, dreamy, and disturbing for the viewer. A DVD retrospective of 18 long-form Concrete TV episodes is available for purchase online, with "over 9 hours of sex, art, and violence." Special thanks from Boing Boing to Ron "Concrete Ron" Rocheleau, the creator, director, and producer of this legendary video art project.
