‘These works were Initially broadcast as television interventions but subsequent single-screen gallery viewings cannot induce a sense of the original context. An alternative proposal exhibits them as a multi-faceted installation, all seven displayed at the same time, each continuously looping on seven separate monitors randomly placed in close proximity in a single space. The sound conflicts and viewers simultaneously see parts of others as they attempt to concentrate on one. This induces some confusion, as it was when they first appeared on TV, creating “difficulties” analogous to the original experience…. It has the feeling of intervention.’ – David Hall 2005
This version was produced by Adam Lockhart at REWIND with David Hall to create an installation version with the 7 video monitors placed on plinths. It was first shown at the REWIND Soft Launch in 2006 at the DCA Dundee. https://rewind.ac.uk/events/rewind-soft-launch/
