Side Effects
This series is about the side effects of the television.
Because we watch television a lot, we can't really stigmatize this medium with a straight face. In fact, we thought it was much more interesting to discover what happens to us when exposed to TV programs for an extended period of time, i.e., to feel what goes through our bodies.
These images are the result of many hours spent in front of the screen, many hours of improvisation and compulsion, and for us they act as “circuits” (or better, “short circuits”), as “connections” between the main figure (and his actions), the images of the television programs, and the domestic environment, or the domestic human presencies, that are reflected everywhere on the screen.
About the prints
We personally make all our prints in our studio, using the Epson Ultrachrome archivial pigmented inkjet process. The images of the “Side effects” series are printed in the 110x90cm. (43x35”) size. Print editions are limited to five with two artist proofs.
