This animation is an introduction to television. Television democratized media as a platform by allowing creators to communicate with a much wider audience and bypass literacy issues. However, the cost of production nonetheless acts as a barrier for who could, and can, contribute.
This and other animation included in the exhibition From Visionaries to Vloggers (spring 2020) were commissioned by the museum to introduce different media platforms and issues discussed in the exhibition. The museum worked with animation company Cognitive to create short and informative explanations of the platforms, from which further exploration of the accompanying displayed historical material and interviews could flow.
