“A voice is heard telling a story. (It is the artist reading from Erota/Afini, the book of the film by Mike Leggett.) The camera pans down to reveal a tape recorder, which the artist then switches off, the voice ceasing. The camera is panned toward a chair in front of a tv set, which is framed and the camera locked off. The artist then sits in the chair: “ThatÌs enough of watching the radio and listening to the telly, now youÌre going to watch the telly and listen to me”.” Mike Leggett
