Interlude   [2016]
Bronze, aluminium, glass, natural gas
Interlude sets fire in the core of a remodeled television set, a tribute to the domestication of fire 400,000 years ago. Aimed at broadcasting sound and images, the television is diverted from its function and transformed into a fireplace. The prefix “tele”, which means “afar”, evokes the distance produced by the device between the represented content and the viewer. Using a Palaeolithic innovation, Interlude attempts to restore immediate communication that would have been interrupted by media technology. Unlike the information tools that keep us away from the event, Interlude brings people closer together around the fire, radiating without any interposed media.
