bornasammakbestbuysketch_1On October 8th, Best Buy on Broadway will be hosting a glitch art installation, they just don’t know it yet. For one night only, Borna Sammak, the artist who curated himself into the New Museum, is planning to take over every television in the electronics store for his video display: high-definition video clips deconstructed, then “mashed and violently reconstituted in a new, hi-resolution world.” The artist’s “Best Buy” installation and reception will take place at 622 Broadway from 7 PM to 9PM, or until the blue shirts call the cops.
