One video frame can be seen in the TVs – an image which is divided in 27 equal parts. The video frame is based on a combination of two different images, that are made, using the layout principle of video “fields” or “half-frames”. Although only one stationary image can be seen, because of the video imaging technique in CRT screens, an impression of illusory movement is created.
Installation produced with the support of RIXC.
