Is both a eulogy and the start of a question. It is about the transfer of history, via electronic
signal over the airwaves into the headphones' illustrative images. Displayed Termination is a place where images merge into
constant illogical and "substitute" pictures. On a more basic level it is about war, storytelling and the location and speaking
of (or telling of ) cultural and physical death.
There are contained within; stories obsessed over, cultivated and
never absent that belonged to someone who is now dead. They are images that were drawn out from modern "history" and gnawed
at until they became bedtime stories that refused to have the covers drawn over them. Stories that bear an uncanny familial
resemblance to one another, that speak of cultural and historical amnesia.
In this setting death in life is no
longer able to offer any resistance - mourning is a selective means of remembering. Perhaps the dead may indeed strive to
signal us, but we are unable to hear them. We suffocate them out of a sense of duty or guilt or from sheer love with flower,
prayers, tears. Once buried the suicide ceases to offend our sense of decorum and order. In time, we even stop asking ourselves,
