Bush Video Collective

A find from Stephens book mentioned a few posts back

"Bush Video was a prominent group using video as an experimental art form in the early 1970s in Australia. Bush Video was set up by the experimental filmmaker, Mick Glasheen, who had been using video since 1968. He was approached by the organisers of the Nimbin Aquarius Festival held in May 1973 to provide video access to festival participants. Bush Video applied for funding to build a cable network throughout the town of Nimbin. This was the very first experiment in cable television in Australia." In Stephens book it also talks allot about the computer processing and video synthesis  and feedback work that some of the members did as well as their activist work.
