View and explore these time-capsule collections to learn about our humble beginnings and exponential growth in the arts industry.

The Periods Exhibit
Founded in 1992, CyberSpace Gallery became one of the world’s first galleries dedicated to digital art. A logical extension of EZTV, it was Southern California’s ‘ground zero’ for the transition from desktop analog to desktop digital production.

John Dorr: The Legacy
John Dorr (1947-1993) had a vision for the wide-spread use and acceptance of feature-length narrative cinema created on home analog video equipment. It was this vision that led to the creation of one of the world's first video theaters, computer art galleries, and independent media centers.
Kate Johnson: In Memoriam
Kate Johnson (1969-2020) was a hyphenate. An exemplar of the evolution of the new creative class of the 21st Century. Here we celebrate her life and her works as one of the driving forces behind EZTV. She will be remembered as an artist, filmmaker, publisher, educator, and friend.
