A guerilla TV station explores ideas related to broadcast and technology mediators by re-transmitting the Twitter monologues of its neighboring Chicagoans on UHF channel 14-½.

This piece was part of the exhibition Ill Communication at Heaven Gallery in Chicago. The curator, Joe Jeffers, asked the 6 invited artists to respond to the theme of the show by creating two works for two rooms in the gallery – one that functions as a system’s interface and the other as its output. In the case of UTV, the interface takes place on the Internet, the digital processing and re-transmission occurs at the desk installation at the gallery, and the output is in the form of an over-the-air TV broadcast.
