1982, 12:00 minutes, colour, English


The content of the video image is reduced to the video screen, the content of the home is reduced to a floor plan and the content of language is reduced to "potatoe". The tape explores absurdity, language, video and philosophies of thought events. Some of the text is rephrased from contemporary phenominological philosophers.
