minds eye (2005)

his piece explores many areas of phonetics/words and there instant association with images & News. The world has become over diluted with imagery, so that their meaning has become diluted. What does it take these days to shock, nothing can compete with War & Poverty, Happiness & Consumerism that is offered instantly by TV. Has this become the new barometer of our senses. What this piece tries to show, through random text, images, video & news, is the uncertainty of life, and how one image or word or story does not fit all people the same.

The right screen calls up unrelated adjectives and the left, nouns which I have chosen through certain criteria. In this way un-programmed eccentric concepts are created such as Imaginary - Reality, Universal - confusion, Terminated - evolution etc. To add another layer to the senses, the viewer must compete with the slightly muffled sound of the radio, which should be live. The radio provides the element of Hot media, in contrast to the cold media of image and words.
