Why is the No Video Signal Blue? Or, Color is No Longer Separable From Form, and the Collective Joins the Brightness Confound ~A Guided Meditation~

This video/audio file/essay starts by asking why the no video signal is blue. At first it presents a futile attempt to deconstruct the meaning of the color blue, then reaches beyond standard rhetorical and semiotic models through the philosophy of Brian Massumi, William James, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, interactions with Sony customer support, and the compositions of Walter de Maria and Alice DeeJay.
