Color Field Television is featured in the HTML Color Codes Exhibition, hosted by Rhizome and curated by Carolyn Kane.

From the exhibition statement:

“The HTML Color Codes exhibition features a selection of internet based artwork that address the topic of digital color

Color Field Television is akin to watching an abstract painting on television, on speed….Unlike the color field paintings, where a viewer would wander in a gallery and presumably ponder over a single composition before moving on to the next?there is no time for reflection, only stimulus-and-response. Second, unlike traditional television which has classically assumed a passive, narcotic, receptive state of media consumption, Color Field Television, demands a more active response by directly engaging the viewer at a closer proximity and more demanding pace.” — Carolyn Kane
