No Video Input
(Collaboration with Niklas Roy and Benjamin Galoun)
We need to feed our technology. Not only with content, but with other pieces of technology. The disassembly, modifying and reassembly of the elements that make up the piece “No Video Input” reminds us that the technology that completes our lives, also needs technology to be complete.
The disbanded LCD monitor is disassembled into its major components. A microwave oven is stripped of its motors and an old drawer is relieved of its sliders. The elements of these technologies are recombined into a homunculus that is the piece “No Video Input”.
The LCD monitor is rendered impotent without a proper video signal, or accurate placement of the LCD screen over the florescent back light. “No Video Input” is an exploration into not only our dependence on technologies, but technology’s dependence on itself.
