MMVI symbolically deconstructs the authority of television as a medium. This is a clip of a multi-channel work, in which 4 monitors are used to deconstruct the switching off sequence of the monitor. MMVI confronts the viewer with a monitor that is in the process of constantly switching itself off. The sequence slows progressively, stretching the length of the off sequence from its fraction of a second duration, toward a virtual stasis.
