This project was also realized in 2011, in a different format, at the American Academy in Rome.

 

 

This installation consists of six TV-sets hung directly below a skylight.  

The skylight’s niche and its TV-sets are fully covered in black varnish spray paint, save for a few small circular spots on the TV-set screens. The TV-sets emit live programming, which in the darkened space becomes a wondrous display of twinkling lights, or constellation of electronic stars.

This sculpture consists of a single TV-set standing on a pedestal. They have both been completely painted with black varnish spray, except for a few small circular spots on the TV-set screen. The TV emits live programming, which when viewed in a darkened space, becomes a wondrous display of twinkling lights that create an imaginary constellation of electronic stars.
