The end of an era brings new beginnings. On September 1st 2011, the Government of Canada ended analog television (in Canada). The static snowy channel, a familiar image to many of us growing up, is gone. Now dead, the static channel will have a nostalgic value to our generation and will mean nothing to future generations. END OF ANALOGcombines an old television with new video capturing technology to present a 3D image of the viewer in the television static, as homage to what once was.
