I’ve cut out newspapers, extracting soap opera announcements. These texts were then edited: I’ve removed all the protagonists’ names and replaced them with pronouns.
This made room for over 10 000 new sentences which describe actions and events between anonymous participants.
These texts are then played on several TV screens.
Since the texts vary in length and rhythm, it’s possible to combine and connect them into endless narratives without true structure or time/space limits.
The banality of soap operas intrigues and seduces us with this potential story, putting viewers in a position of a voyeur, trying to grasp other people’s juicy drama.
