Jennifer Juniper Stratford established Telefantasy Studios in 2004 to create mind melting mutant video and Television experiences. Scavenging the ruins of the post-digital-apocalypse, JJ hunts down analog broadcast equipment cast off from Hollywood studios. This treasured hardware is then redeployed to create innovative and original new programming, often in alliance with some of the multiverse’s brightest stars to create cult classic public access programs, highly sought-after sim-sense chips, video experiments and music videos which invite you to turn on, jack in and rock out.
JJ’s work has been exhibited, broadcast, and screened internationally at MoCA Geffen Contemporary,The Getty, Cinemarfa, CPH:DOX, The Museum of the Moving Image, The New Beverly Cinema, Storefront for Art & Architecture, BAM Cinématek, Cinefamily, and on public access stations across the United States, and various exhibitions in Cyberspace.
Telefantasy’s newest embodiment is Telefantasy Television and it’s headquarters located at Coaxial Arts in Downtown LA will be open to the public from October 15 – 31. Visitors will play their part in creating the future of television when they meet H.A.R.R.I.E.T. – Telefantasy’s latest innovation in network programming technology. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!
Telefantasy Television’s super swanky opening reception takes place on October 15 and further events will be programmed by H.A.R.R.I.E.T. in due course.
