Artist Chris Shen Creates INFRA – A TV Made Out Of 625 Discarded Remote Controls.

Hooray for Jubbling art! Here’s Chris Shen’s description of INFRA:

“625 discarded remote controls, repurposed to broadcast live television using the infrared LEDs inside each device. Creating an infrared display invisible to the naked eye. When viewed through infrared goggles, the light becomes visible and the low resolution TV broadcast can be seen.”

INFRA had me at discardedrepurposed was just the gravy.

The first time I watched the INFRA video above, its low-res image reminded me of the scene in Contact when Jodie Foster receives the grainy video beamed back from space. Anyways, nice to see art that is created from normally discarded items. [Boing Boing]
