‘Is the, is the’ (2012-ongoing) HD Video and Samsung Syncmaster
‘Is the, is the’ appropriates the form of an unboxing video, a popular form of video found online that demonstrates the unboxing of consumer goods.
The item that is unboxed is slowly revealed to be the HD monitor that the viewer is watching the video on. Every time the work is exhibited a new version of the work is produced so that a gradual cartography of time becomes visible. Consequently the work is always site specific and the more it is exhibited the more it starts to degrade and distort.
