July 2nd, 2018 marked the "official" 3rd anniversary of Anime On VHS, a weird glitch art project that I used to do before (and during) I focused more on music photography, but for me, this project was something I did since 2013 here and there so overall it's been 5 years before I the project was an official thing. Anime On VHS for me was an inspiration of a mixture of my love for anime and video games from my childhood, Korean-based video artist Nam June Paik, and it also led me a chance to experiment with physical media and use my camera more as a tool then it's ever been. I felt bored by conventional ways of using photography around me (i.e portraits, weddings, commercial work) so I just took it on myself and try to do something I haven't seen done before at that time. I made the Anime On VHS Tumblr around the time I started this project and since then it's a popular blog that gave me a lot of reblogs, likes, and follows for whatever I posted; however the big thing starting out was getting picked up to print out zines with a small independent zine out in Colorado and from there I was also chosen to feature some of my work in Minneapolis for the Glitch Art Is Dead exhibit at Gamut Gallery and The Pharmacy galley in Stanwix, Carlisle. This post is basically almost all the completed work that I did for AOV along with some work that hasn't been posted anywhere else. It's hard to say whether this project will continue on in the future since as of right now things are kinda busy on my end and doing this is energy and time consuming, but who knows what will happen during that point.
You can also pick up some t-shirts and prints from my Socitey6 store, which you can find down below and take a piece of history with you.
