Steve Gompf's art is not just one thing. First there are the objects: Televisors. Televisors were the early precursors of televisions. There is a website called teleseum.org where you can find out more about the fascinating history of these devices. Except... well, this is also the art of Steve Gompf. He has created an entire alternate history of the early years of television that adhere's closely enough to the bizarre truth that it all seems plausible. It isn't. But the fact that he makes it seem so is a testament to his art. But there's more. He also creates the video loops that play on his alternate historical apparatuses, mutated into little nightmares mostly from old Eadweard Muybridge work (see some here). He also works with sound and music but as I'm unfamiliar with this aspect of his work I can say nothing about it except this; if it's on a par with everything else he does it's probably brilliant. Let me just add that if you are ever in the Phoenix area, go out of your way to look at one of his brilliantly restored gems from an era that never really was.
