The Fixation Database is a visual study of color and light rhythm in films, music videos, and other time-based media. Each image in the database presents every frame from its source video placed sequentially in a grid, creating a visual, colored timeline, called a fixation. This Television Database focuses on the history of television. The first television drama was broadcast from Schenectady, New York station WGY on September 11, 1928, and while the early live television programs were rarely recorded, the database presents a broad variety of programs. Starting with The Twilight Zone from 1959 to the entire collection of Game of Thrones episodes, the overarching technological and aesthetic development of the small screen format is revealed.
