As a cold virtual solid abstract structure is endlessly generating on the screen behind, I read out peacefully in microphone, a text also algorithmic generated. The text supposedly addresses me as an art student and lists what have ever influenced me with a stack of completely randomized references in the history of art. The text goes on with its rigorous structure to reach a certain insanity. The over-usage of the names of artists, thinkers and singers in an automated way in combination to the uncertainty of form in the video, tries to generate an absurd statement in digital arts. Randomness serves as a defence against demands of achievement in art. The object in the video image is separated from the frame demonstrating an individual but ever changing autonomy, a performing body. As Gregory Bateson puts it, 'a self-correcting system which has lost its governor, spirals into never-ending, but always systematic, distortion'. Both the text and image are hard-written, opposing the interactive trend and real-time digital media.
