Duration: 00:01:48

Genre: Art video
Production: Aksioma

 
SYNOPSIS
The Big Switch Off is a part of Supertrash exhibition in which the artist problematizes mass destruction of worn out technological equipment and the dumping of it in the third world countries. In the video in question, characterized by a utopian touch, we follow opening and closing of windows of a big apartment building through which some of the tenants throw out cathodic TV receivers. The video gives a comment about introducing digital signal, which replaced the analogue one and as a result the devices, which don't support the new technology, cathodic TVs and TVs without digital converters among others, became obsolete and useless.
