No Signal (2009)

Running time: 4:35

I turn on a Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector without wiring it to any input channels, thus prompting the system’s ‘no signal’ message default. I wave my hand through the projection of the message, first to mimic a shutter, then to greater exaggerate the distortion of the white text into a rainbow blur. My hand gets increasingly vigorous over the course of 4 minutes before I get too exhausted to continue.
