1,001 sets say farewell to analogue

An installation named 1001 TV Sets (End Piece) has opened at the huge P3 gallery, in a bid to mark the event.

One thousand and one large analogue television sets, gathered from a range of places including people’s homes, have been laid on their backs in the P3 gallery of the University of Westminsterthe wired from the ceiling down – with each one deafeningly blasting out one of the five terrestrial stations.

On April 18th, the day the analogue switchover is scheduled to happen, all 1,001 televisions in the installation by David Hall, will cease receiving content, broadcasting only a white screen accompanied by white noise. The exhibition will then run for a further four days, allowing all visitors to see the ‘graveyard of analogue televisions’ no longer functioning.
