>realiTV deals with the use of that most ubiquitous of high bandwidth
>information streams: Satellite TV. It is located at the crossroads
>of two major ideas. On the one hand it exploits live TV--intended to
>be the final product--and retrieves new raw material for a further
>creative, highly aesthetic (i.e. relevant!), breathtakingly fast,
>and subversive collage process. At the same time, however, it
>transgresses boundaries normally maintained in the artistic work.
>The machine unleashes a stream of images at such a rate and
>intensity that there is no time to reflect, no time for any kind of
>artistic comment or conduct. The machine short-circuits the world of
>commercial television, the subversive dance club, and avant-garde
>sonic art with all possible consequences.
>
>realiTV is an installation by John Dekron, Peter Castine, and
>realities:united.

>We look forward to seeing you!
