Don’t kill your TV… paint it!

October 25th, 2009

I spotted this TV last night at the Bridgewater Bristo. I’ve never been so enamored with recycled art as I have this funky old TV.

Works best if you pause it, let it load, and then play it. It’s hard to tell, but it’s the TV’s static that makes the magic happen.

    What an awesome piece of art! I’ve never seen anything like it. I wonder what it would look like if the tv still worked and was turned on…maybe it would glow all crazy like!! I’m thinking big round circles in the backround…x

  2. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    What a clever idea. And you could change the painting with the season!!! Wish I was there checking it out with you!! xo

  3. The fabulous AnyoneCanQuilt allegedly said:

    Oh! I just watched it again and realized the tv was on! My bad. Still would love to see it BRB style though. x

  4. The fabulous Mary Ann/Ca allegedly said:

    So cool! I’ll have to add it to my “someday a trip up the coast” file. Thanks for sharing.

  5. The fabulous Etta allegedly said:

    That’s actually quite cute. I’ve seen fishtanks made from old Macintosh computers. I want one!

  6. The fabulous blop allegedly said:

    That is really cool!! How fun is that..would love to have it, too!!

  7. The fabulous Carmen allegedly said:

    The ideas people think of :) It would look fab with a spooky halloween painting too - lots of pumpkin lanterns :D

  8. The fabulous Kathi D allegedly said:

    Wait, though. Isn’t that snow where the monsters come from? Let me think this over.

    So cool!

  12. The fabulous Mego allegedly said:

    We’re on our way to Cannon Beach next weekend…I guess we’ll have to cross at Rainier and make a stop at the Bistro! Thanx!

  13. The fabulous Mary on Lake Pulaski allegedly said:

    Thanks for sharing this super cool finding with us! If all parents did this to their TVs, we would have less problems in the world!

  14. The fabulous Sally allegedly said:

    Your video is perfect! I think the next step is to paint different scenes on some clear, filmy material (I have no idea what that would be, of course) that would stick to the screen. That way you could change the art for different holidays and seasons!

  15. The fabulous Karin allegedly said:

    So cool! What a great idea. Someone is very clever.

  16. The fabulous elizabeth allegedly said:

    I love it! I’d love one in my sewing room…it’s so cool to be able to watch something while working, and no worries about missing anything!
    Your reporting was SO PRO, btw!

  17. The fabulous Cindy allegedly said:

    That is so cool. Leave it to an Astorian to come up with something so creative. :)

  18. The fabulous emilie allegedly said:

    haha how cool is that ?

  19. The fabulous Candace allegedly said:

    What a great idea, Monica! Now I know what to do with our old “big-box” TV that no one wants - we can make it into art at the Squash House!

  20. The fabulous Karen Snyder allegedly said:

    This was soooooo cool. I loved everything about it–the idea of using a TV as a “frame,” the fact that the TV was on and the snow in the background made it sparkle, and the fact that it was a really cook painting!

  21. The fabulous v and co allegedly said:

    man you have a sexy voice.

  22. The fabulous amylouwho allegedly said:

    that is way cool. I love Astoria too! Did I tell you I’ve been there twice? Up the column both times? The view of the river and all of that is A.Maz.Ing.

  23. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    I want one! Way to cool!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
