Digital artist Jarkko Räsänen is a member of the FixC artists co-operative, who have been organising teletext festivals since 2012. Their most recent teletext project, TART2020 (Teletext Art 2020), proved so popular that it has been extended for another month (until 25/5) on YLE Text. Note: this episode was recorded before the extension was announced.
In this conversation with Dan, Jarkko speaks about his own practice, how the International Teletext Art Festival was born, the artform’s development and future plans for the Museum of Teletext Art.
