Souvenirs From Earth: TV Channel for Film & Video art

"SOUVENIRS FROM EARTH is an international Cable TV station, currently broadcasting in France and Germany, presenting a 24h art program, based on Video art, Film, Visual art, Music, Installations and Performances.

Founder Marcus Kreiss and Curator Alec Crichton conceived this channel as a platform where artists of different sensibilities can find a high–end environment to experience new forms of distribution and presentation. Our production section also produces comissioned and free video art."

Active Ingredient: Make TV to Watch TV

"Merging live video with a social networking environment, MakeTV constructed a live programme of self moderated videos, 15 minutes of fame where every audience member could be a producer of content, and anyone anywhere could be the audience. Active Ingredient designed the time loop where 48 hour rotating live programme could be added to, viewed and recorded.

Active Ingredient hosted several events that used MakeTV as a new space for artists, which included the ongoing collaboration with Trampoline and the Radiator Festival, Sideshow (A Brit Art fringe event), Dislocate and Nottingham Trent University. The programme included new works developed for MakeTV by artists who had worked with Active Ingredient through Moon Radio webTV, since 2000 including: Jordan McKenzie, Sophia Lycouris, Frank Abbott, Sarah Thom and Elyce Semenac, Gareth Howell and Jeanie Finlay.

With the advent of YouTube, Skype and Live video conferencing online, everything changed and finally anyone could have access to online video. The Internet is now full of opportunities for artists making video work. MakeTV is no longer live, as Active Ingredient moved their focus and resources towards making their own work."
