Tim Tate's Digital Reliquaries
Artist Tim Tate has created miniature reliquaries to digital video that memorializes this modern technology. Tate grew up enjoying the powerful influence of video and wanted to create a glass capsule to preserve these artifacts. After experimenting with DVD players encased within glass, Tate realized a custom video player without moving parts would have to be developed. He partnered with a electronic optics company and over the course of year developed a little video system that could loop video without the need of repair.
