1- channel videoloop for TV and DVD-Player.
This videoinstallation is a sample from a greater collection focused on media analysis. This video shows a typical principe of the DVD. Each single warning text is written on a different sector of the DVD. By recording the sound of a spinning disc with the ise of a contact microphone, it is possible to hear the rotation-frequency of each sector (a similar principe to the first mechanical synthesizers).
The warning screens are taken from Tod Browning´s “Freaks” (MGM, 1932) and are shown in 27 different languages.
