The fleeting moment of television

You have to be of a certain age to really appreciate this.
Stephan Tillmans is a German photographer that captures tube televisions at the moment they shut down. Just for a few seconds the tv signal disintegrates into abstract shapes and colors before it dies completely. That flitting moment is captured in this series of photos that celebrate geometry, abstraction and light; but are also permeated by a melancholic feeling of an imminent end.
