A therapy session is directed by the system operator of a streetside multimedia kiosk. While the artist indulges in a virtual conversation about a troublesome relationship, the session is transformed into an amalgamation of daytime television and tabloid, where the camera becomes the eye of the media.
The artist plays the role of user and system operator. The system operator or candid computer 'host' is both on-line technician and /or 'host' of an on-line program which is broadcast over the world wide web.
