2015 Broken display technologies, videos, dimensions variable With the support of SCAM
Return of the Broken Screens consists of a series of video compositions for damaged screens, found or bought used. The damage and alterations due to bad handling of a former owner are the only mean to differentiate these mass-produced objects that are themselves designed to display all types of images. Here, each composition is created for a specific screen; adapting and playing with their particularities, it blurs the boundaries between real and virtual spaces. As the Japanese art of Kintsugi (reparation of broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold), the screens find a second life. The hole in the glass of an iPhone, the deliquescent pixels of a plasma screen, the star shaped cracks of a tablet: all these accidents become the origin and are involved in the video, trying to play with each particularity.
