Screening | 00:48:00. Compilation. The rising trend to use audio-visual techniques in contemporary art inspired NICC Television. This alternative TV station wants to create a stage to artists before a wider audience by snatching airtime in the existing media landscape. The first project, TELENICC 1, assigned the artists to make one-minute works. These were sampled in between existing shows on the TV stations. NICC television purposes to acquire a certain regularity in the broadcasting of this new art form.
