I learned that it’s called ‘Jersey Club’ everywhere EXCEPT South Jersey/Philly, where it’s just called ‘club’.

“60 Second Wipeout” – Collaborative Video Art Installation
If you’re a video artist in the 21st century working with CRTs, then you’ve got Nam-June Paik to thank for that. Nam-June was a Fluxus member, known for his keen combinations of Video Art and Installation art. His appreciation for the lowbrow (and for consumer electronics) in a fine art context has been a continual source of inspiration to me for my entire video art career. Nam-June was the first Videopunk.
It’s NJP’s world, we’re just living in it.
60 SECOND WIPE-OUT is meant to build on this, in a very concrete way. Inspired by NJP’s small, self-contained video art installations, each CRT Display has a Raspberry Pi loaded with 60 second video art clips from the following artists, played back randomly, forever. Each Pi will (eventually) contain 24 hours worth of 60 second video art pieces (1440 in total).
Note: After we’ve gotten all the media from everyone, I’ll probably add more context to this section, and I’ll remove the Upload instructions.
Here’s a list of the Collaborators:
• Your name goes here
