Videopunks VHS

0008900603_10

Starting in 2015, I’ve both produced and executive produced close to 50 Limited Edition video art and multimedia VHS tapes released with the The Basement Labs.

Every tape is hand dubbed, and assembled.  To date, we’ve shipped over 1200 tapes all over the world, and the works have been featured on German TV, Internet Public Access Stations, and everywhere in between.

Here are some selections from the Catalog.  More information is available at http://thebasementlabsworldwide.com , and many are still available at http://thebasementlabs.bandcamp.com

Many of these releases are currently screening on 8BallTV.Club
