Renaissance Television
Contest Directions: Cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs are quickly becoming a history. The demand for them is so small that the major TV manufacturers stopped producing CRTs years ago. There is only a handful of CRT TV makers remaining, and they are based in China and South Korea. Most people just give away their old CRTs, or dump them at recycling facilities. Besides losing to LCD TVs in technology and quality, CRTs are very energy inefficient, emit radiation, cause harmful air ionization, emit toxic chemicals, and strain your eyes by constant flickering. Yet, it was the CRTs that stared the television era, and we will be forever grateful to this old unit.
To pay a tribute to good old CRT (cathode-ray tube) TV technology which started the TV era, photoshop CRT (cathode-ray tube) type of TVs in any old paintings or drawings. (We call it Renaissance because it sounds familiar, but art pieces from any other old period are also acceptable.) Many thanks to Mundo for the themepost.
