Talk to Me is an audiovisual installation formed by a mini projector that emits images over an old TV set which doesn’t work anymore.

 

This work investigates the dialogue possibilities among different devices from different times, from the understanding of the growing ephemeral character of goods and technologies, and their fast disposal and abandonment. Therefore, the conception of a talk between two differently aged devices with different working patterns provides them a new alternative of use and afterlife.

 

The content projected on the TV set is a video that shows an image full of interferences, very common on old televisions, interleaved by flashes of iconic scenes from Brazilian and Wordwide TV history.

 

As if in an agony and overthrow state, the old set tries to survive, but in order to make this possible it depends on an external, contemporary device, that apparently gives it back its vital functions. Therefore, what actually happens it’s just a projection of something that once was native for itself.
