Description
>>>>HOST_CAVITY<<<< is a video water fountain. Five video signals flow through the salt water and vinyl tubing into the basin, where they mix and flow through the televisions. The sculpture amplifies a comparison of electrical and liquid current, accentuating the physicality of signal and electricity. The videos themselves are currents of distorted collages that work with and against the phasing created by the TVs.
