The last ever VCR manufacturer ceased production July 2016 which was the final nail in the coffin for the VHS media format. VHS was the leading home video format for almost 3 decades and thousands of home viewers hired tapes from the video store, recorded TV shows to tape, bootlegged films or archived poorly shot home movies. Nowadays VHS holds a nostalgic tone through revisiting old footage or re-purposing old video content to create a new wave of vintage video art.

CAPITAL WASTE, a local Adelaide-based video artist carries the torch of magnetic tape of yesteryear and through a mixture of analogue and digital manipulations, he brings a fresh vision to VHS. This curated collection of Australian and international VHS video-art and short films shines a light on some of the present day lo-fi tape masters.
