Watching television is a captivating break from our work, problems, and responsibilities. We enjoy watching the lives of other people. Real or not, we can identify with them. They leave us feeling fulfilled and comforted. Sometimes they are just mindless escapes.
Using codes, conventions, and other elements of TV medical dramas, I appropriated a context and repurposed it to reconsider my own world and the way it is influenced by this sort of fiction.
Using video as the medium to materialise these issues into a designed form. Researching, identifying and keeping crucial elements of the TV hit "Grey's Anatomy," I then placed them in my immediate surroundings. Both the reality and the role fiction plays in it become visible, the way they function is revealed.
