What looks like the world’s biggest VHS collection, is actually an artistic display presented at the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Art in 2009.
The work is entitled “Life Span” and displayed in a small church on Garibaldi Street, this giant block full of VHS videotapes is the work of Australian artists Claire Healey and Sean Cordeiro. The VHS collection features a total count of 195,774 tapes with a total recording time of over 66 years! Imagine if a VHS to DVD transfer was involved!
Life Span is a physical representation of what a human being can see from its birth, to the day it dies.
