3GTV

2016 ()



An immersive viewing platform/automated web-based TV channel dedicated to the one million or so .3gp* files that have found their way onto Youtube, with the option to narrow video selections down to specific regions and categories. With thanks to Rhizome, who commissioned it as part of their microgrants program (see blog post here).

Designed to be viewed with Google Chrome.

 *A largely extinct file container that was most popular during the first wave of video-playing mobile phones.
