Home / ‘0778


Part of the VideoRhizome series initiated in 2002. The pieces result primarily from the moment of recording. I seek out the interrelations between events in their contingency, which are in some cases frustrating and in others surprising. The videos thus produced are assigned a four-digit number chosen at random (E.g. 0667, 5040, 8246), resulting in an unconnected sequence. In a second step, I open the telephone book, from the city in which I live, to a random page and determine whether there is any relationship between my current address, the address in the book and the numbering of the works. If there is, I send a tape of the video with the matching number (to the street number, the door number or the telephone number) to that address. The tapes bear no return address, only a stamp with the number of the video.
