I began REALITY TV in 2008, a time when digital content and information was just beginning to be created and distributed in tsunami like waves. While this has only increased since that time, I had not yet become conditioned to its assaults. The volume of data I was exposed to daily had become unbearable. REALITY TV began as my response to this nerve wrecking time.
Focusing my attention on television broadcasts and its constant beam, I photographed the light being emitted as it fell upon the white walls of the room where it was being viewed. Each composite photograph represents a television program. The assembled images of saturated color vibrate against each other creating their own visual sensation. They form a strip of colored data resembling pixilated information; transforming the data it was created from.
In REALITY TV 2009, I assemble 12 selected images and arrange them to maintain the aspect ratio of a wide screen television. In REALITY TV 2010, I photograph the entire program and assemble each image in a platform that reflects the length of the broadcast.
