Colby Richardson is a media artist and experimental filmmaker currently based in Toronto ON, Canada. Driven by a fascination with underused media technologies and by the way we interact with and value the technology at our disposal, Richardson’s work examines the artistic capabilities of tools and devices often unconsidered and dismissed.

Innervision is an ongoing project utilizing a variety of crt monitors in various arrangments with monitor-specific video works portraying an introspective purgatory for the cathode ray tube television. A gradual, perpetual zoom contrasts the notion of infinity with the shockingly finite existence of relatively recent technologies, such as the CRT television. With no television broadcasts left to receive, and having outlived their usefulness to consumer society, these aging television sets have nowhere else to turn but inwards.
