duration 3h minimum
the electronics generate a white line moving back and forth across a television screen--the intricate patterns that emerge result from the breakdown of the television's ability to "see" (and represent) this line as it moves faster and faster. as the velocity of the line increases, it appears to leave copies of itself in its trail and later, moving even faster, it fragments into smaller and smaller segments which assemble into delicate woven patterns, spinning helices and noisy fields of light. this lengthy process creates a space for the viewer to consider the creative power and depth of line, the phenomenology of technology and the fecundity of communication error.
