For this video package with a difference, ten of New Zealand's leading artists have made videos that just might perhaps maybe say something about the possible effect of rock video on video art.

Teletubbies, Surrealistic videoscapes, hippy psychedelia, alien space invaders, graffiti art, teenage love and general, timeless angst will all go head to head when the following brave and under-briefed artists give it up for all to see.

The Physics Room is the first venue for this touring package which offers a not-to-be-missed opportunity to get down with your bad self and watch telly in the GRUNT MACHINE video lounge.
