Artist Creates Infrared TV From 625 Remote Controls (video)


Artist Chris Shen has taken 625 discarded remote controls and created a new and very unique TV which uses infrared and is invisible to the naked eye, and only visible using infrared goggles. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Infra TV project and see it in action.

“Each of the 625 remote controls is second-hand, without the corresponding TV set”, the artist told SlamXHype earlier this month. “The remotes were discarded, or deemed useless by their previous owner. I will reverse the roles of these devices that are intended to control our TVs, to become the TV itself. By exploring infrared technology, I hope to provide insight into a world that is by its very nature unseen.”
