Teleskin. 2006

Teleskin offers a televiewer taking control over TV interface in her hands. When pushing a remote control button one does not switch the content (who cares about that?) but the shape: a TV model, interior where it is placed, - another words, the context - both visual and ideological. The process of zapping is not any more a thoughtless way of spending time, but a creative activity that is forming one's living space. When altering TV skin and adjusting it to a current mood, one breaks free form pre-defined behavioral patterns of the totalitarian post-information society.
