We’re definitely up to the challenge of converting all these tapes to DVD and Online Video.

Unfortunately, they’re all copyrighted material and a work of art; so, we’ll just have to wait for our customers tapes to pile-in like this.

What looks like the world’s biggest videotape collection, is actually an artistic display presented at this year’s Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art.”

“Entitled Life Span and displayed in a small church on Garibaldi Street, this giant block full of VHS videotapes is the work of Australian artists Claire Healey and Sean Cordeiro. In numbers 195,774 tapes and features a total recording time of 66 years.”

“Life Span is a physical representation of what a human being can see from its birth, to the day it dies.”
