Welcome to the home of PARK 4DTV.
PARK4DTV was an Amsterdam artist initiative that dealt with the promotion and implementation of the production of art, especially art on television and the establishment of events, with emphasis on time-based arts.
From 1991 - 2006 PARK4DTV aired nightly broadcasts of exactly one hour of 'Pure Image and Sound' at the Amsterdam cable television with the motto:
<< Pure Sound and Vision, 1 Thing 1 Hour >>
<< To Watch is to Steal, Watch This, Tape This >>
The same works were broadcasted on television stations in Rotterdam, New York, Berlin and Ekaterinburg. Since 2006 PARK4DTV focused on digital media art, including art DVDs, Urban Screens, and handheld computers. PARK4DTV published the App RAUDIO IIIII
PARK4DTV was founded by Maarten Sprenger, Dick Tuinder, Maarten Ploeg† and Peter Mertens. In the course of time among others Wiel Seuskens, Martin Takken, Jasper van den Brink, Kuno Terwindt, Harco Haagsma, Sonja van Hamel, Jeroen Kooijmans, Constant Dullaart, Vera Stiphout, Alberto de Michele and Linda Bannink were part of the team. Most of them still create work that keeps the spirit of PARK up.
Among the contributions to PARK4DTV are works by Gerald van der Kaap, Aernout Mik, de Rijke†/de Rooij, Yariv Alter Fin†, Fiona Tan and many more valued artists.
PARK4DTV now considers the entire collection - of an estimated 1500hrs -
1 comprehensive artwork.
