RealiTV

Kimber Thompson's avatar Kimber Thompson

“RealiTV” is an American flag displayed on a (super) large flat-screen TV, measuring over 5-feet tall by 9-feet wide. Each stripe of the flag shows a different type of television show - from top to bottom, they are: reality shows, soap operas, variety shows, self-improvement/DIY shows, game shows, talk shows, children's tv shows, comedy, drama, sci-fi, sports, news, and cartoons. Each stripe is a timeline for that type of tv show, with the oldest on the left to shows from today on the right. The blue union field shows awards in the background, and the stars are from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. EACH IMAGE IS HAND-PAINTED! Over 1,000 tiny portraits make up this hugely entertaining art piece. At the core of the piece is the question, "Who do you know better? These TV personalities, or your next door neighbor?"
