On February 17, 2009, the U.S. television broadcast signal will go digital, effectively putting an end to analog television. To mark this moment, The End of Television in Pittsburgh are soliciting videos to air February 17th on the to-be obsolete medium of analog TV. For a full day, submitted videos will be transmitted on Channel 2, and the organizers claim the project "re-imagines the omnipresent idea of 'broadcast yourself.'" One wonders if artists will begin taking over these neglected airwaves once the switchover is complete, an exciting possibility to be sure. The End of Television will be accepting submissions until January 25th.
