Electric Dreams

What do Videowalls dream when left idle?

In a rare moment of absence of programming can they voice independent contents?

 

These are, of course, simple devices and their digital personalities would probably voice only fairly basic images.

 

That is what I tried to fathom when I highjacked, with some insider’s complicity, two different screens: a permanent installation and one on wheels set just for the the Fashion Week.

When I randomly inserted contrasting instructions, they similarly reacted with simple, geometric, but rather pleasant compositions of dots, simple shapes, colors and numbers.
