STAY TUNED

Installation

The everlasting flow of television news-channels are captured and displayed live on the surface of 3D shapes in a virtual-reality environment. Words, phrases, gestures, facial expressions and the symbolic images of adverts loose their original context through the permanent repetition and the parallel display. They start to influence each other while they move and bounce around the 3d space.
The result is a report of newsworthy incidents displaced in time and displayed in a hysterical manner using the same glittering aesthetics, which news channels use to attract viewers.
In this way the extensively designed corporate identity, the beautiful images of advertising and the glittering video-graphical attractions of news channels destroy their own content indeed.
