Say A

duration: 3.26 min.

A TV moderator is sitting against the tipical TV studio blue screen and says: “Ah.” The scene show unexpectedly moves deep into the screen, becoming only a studio screen broadcast in itself. A new scene appears in its place: a TV moderator uttering “Ah” against a blue background. This scene wanes inside the screen, again, being only a studio broadcast in a screen. This keeps going on, and the spectator becomes involved in the space of a never-ending media tunnel. Gradually, the time span between the loops shortens, the speed increases, and the “Ah” sounds become one “AAAAAhhhh” scream. The end of traveling along the tunnel is a view in the screen of a video camera shooting the scene. A view of a giant studio appears before us, in the middle of which, wearing a coat but no pants, the lonesome moderator is sitting, screaming, and lingering, and bursting in the camera.
