Artist Statement:


    In 1973 Nam June Paik asked “How soon will artists have their own TV channels?”. In 2015 Kubrick or Korine respond with a channel conceived for cultural producer, icon and visual artist James Franco. 24 Hour Franco pays homage to the screen visions of Paik and the presence of Franco. It encases Hollywood image-flow within avant-garde form and speaks to the commingling of art and celebrity in the global image economy. Part project and part product: 24 Hour Franco can be retro-fitted to discarded CRT’s to deliver a TV sculpture for airports, hotels or shopping malls in the spirit of Paik’s “global groove”.
