This year will mark the end of analog TV in the UK when London officially switches to digital on April 18, 2012. To commemorate this transition, renowned artist David Hall has created an installation featuring 1001 different tv sets, ranging in boxy size, age, and condition, that are each running on different analog stations, simultaneously, for this piece titled 1001 TV Sets (End Piece).

The artist, who is well known for his pioneering video art installations, has reworked his 101 TV Sets from the 70’s in this massive solo exhibition titled End Piece… that is currently on display at Ambika P3 Gallery in London. As the exhibit comes to a close on April 22, 2012, the TV sets will gradually lose their signals until they are nothing but a series of static screens emitting white noise.
