Entering The Unknown
This piece consists of a television that is unexplainably hanging halfway in the wall and is still somewhat functioning. It seems as if the TV was picked up upon discovery of the portal and literally thrown into the wall, disrupting the electronics to create this distant static sound. This represents a sort of unbelievable discovery within the wall, a sort of portal or gateway to another place. If I were to stumble upon a portal, my first impulse would be to see what I can stick in it and what the repercussions would entail. This piece puts into question the limitations of the boundaries that we create and how unexplainable things can defy those limitations. I used a television because I see the TV as a symbol for fantastical thoughts, a representation of things that have been, are now, and will be; and it seemed to be the best way to create this experience for the viewer, while still having it be relateable to the viewer.
