Anna Beata Baranska

The world is an arena of continuous events, conflicts and wars. Every day, in every country, we can hear hundreds of informations filtered through the media. News are often manipulated to serve a specific ideology. TV picture for the average viewer determinates current trends. The film is an expression of rebellion against the worthless content that can be seen in the most popular TV stations. TV picture is subjected to intentional manipulations, through consistent audio and video distortion. Disturbances initially are small but they gradually deform the image by reducing it to the multiplicated center line of RGB pixels in CRT TV, which is accompanied by classic music. Television then becomes an object of audiovisual art.  All content is recycled and television broadcast becomes an abstract image, giving the field to open a multi-faceted interpretation.
