"Human Behavior"

"Human Behavior"

Fran Orallo (Scotland)

We live in the information age. Every day we receive countless news items that exceed our capacity to discern all the information. We are overwhelmed by events and happenings that we are unable to process.

Television plays a decisive role in this oversaturation. Sitting in front of the television turns us into passive subjects bombarded by the news, looking for the most morbid event to capture our attention.

Human Behavior is an exercise in reflection and representation of this information overload. The work metaphorically shows us an oversaturated individual, alienated and tired of television schizophrenia. The background of the video is formed by a glitch, coming from the old cathode televisions, and the audio is a collage of superimposed newscasts.
