Video artist takes over every HDTV at Best Buy store

An experimental video artist took over every single HDTV in a Manhattan, N.Y., Best Buy store last night, temporarily transforming the retail space for one evening into a contemporary art gallery.

The PopSci blog reports that video artist Borna Sammak approached the store’s manager about hosting the event. The show’s producer tells PopSci that all the retailer needed to hear was “foot traffic,” and that an approving nod from corporate came with surprisingly ease.
