The Revolution Will Be Televised

Our relationship to screens – televisions, gaming units, mobile phones and computers – informs our understanding of the world. The blurred lines of the screen exist as visual metaphor for the gaps between sensationalized media and reality. The “truth of the moment” inherent in our understanding of the photographic medium (i.e. the camera doesn’t lie) is packaged with compressed bites of information, and our perception of reality is siphoned through this mediated system. The lines of the screen are a physical and visual typo that demarcate the sight of the eyes from the passive glow of the screen.

Immersed in media culture, the revolution will be televised and witnessed through the flattened plane of the screen.
