Snow Storm
4 min video loop, mono sound, 1982

 

The analog television screen in its default state displays noise, which in this case has taken on the characteristics of a snow storm as if blown by the wind, producing a slippage in language and perception. A dramatic scene of life and death is rendered small and inconsequential by the television screen.
