All artworks are photographed from tv screen and set in a completely different context. The result transports the concentrated essence of a feeling that does not necessarily corresponds to the origin, or just has a very fleeting character. The special optical characteristic brings out this volatile character of seemingly random moments. So stylized this moments become lasting artworks in large format. The medium of television began to fascinate the artist Merian Teutsch long time befor his art studies. Why has this flickering screen such a strong influential part in the reality of the individuals in our society? Although the contents have almost nothing to do with the real life of the recipient? The artworks give no answer – they are the artistic and aesthetic expression of this question.
