SYNOPSIS
Video performance captures a modestly furnished space inside which performers move. Shots are static and unedited. One after another or polyphonically performers repeat the conjugation of the sentence "I am the centre". They use different technical accessories as for example microphone or megaphone. The happening is drily and dull, it has no dramaturgy and it is based on repetition.
Author uses the video to stress the repeating paroles, which are a productive tool for political indoctrination, profit marketing and the seeming satisfaction of the needs and wants created by the market.

Video works Airport 1 and 2 are projected and played together.

NoHomeVideos© video performances, altogether created 14 by the author, are dealing with the experience of being manipulated by the agents of power and control. Performances stress the power of individual's will and intelligence in a fight and resistance against pressure and abuse.
