“Imagine a blackboard full of words written in chalk. The blackboard represents the inner emptiness and the written words are your thoughts. We have to keep the blackboard clear of any kind of structure, thus obtaining an inner emptiness”. This series of works have been created through the ON/OFF switch of the DC adapter, taping the luma signal in a S·VHS recorder and then reproducing the obtained signal in a VHS recorder to get RANDOM distortions.

For the soundtrack design the author gathers sources from different authors, sampling the sounds and correcting their frequencies according to the image.
