A mobile video work of dead TV sets cast in an apocalyptic world.
In this work I used an iPhone 4S to document over an extended period, abandoned television sets on the side of the road. The portability and accessibility of a smartphone in my pocket enabled me to record these dead TVs, as I saw them walking, riding and driving in the inner north suburbs of Melbourne. In the edit I was interested in replicating the rhythm of multi-touch screen actions used to select and delete photos on a smartphone.
