This hermetic tape, whose images reveal little of its true nature, seems to be Vom Bruch's way of undermining the 'public nature' of TV (this work was specially made for Austrian television). Television represents a public space which paradoxically is generally experienced in isolation. For the viewer it is virtually impossible to penetrate TV's public sphere. To the sound of mysterious southern Ethiopian Hamar music, Vom Bruch turns his back on television both literally and figuratively so as to persevere in an extremely personal and introverted form of communication.
