Tectonic Industries

Franklin Art Works was showing three artists exhibitions. One of which was Tectonic Industries: The desire to stay versus the inevitability of change (2008). It consisted of sixteen television sets (eight in a row on each side of the room) all showing people at home, either on their couch or on their bed. When I first walked in, the televisions were all paused and it just looked like still frames of people watching television, which I thought was just as interesting as when the film was played. This could have been because the two sides of televisions were a playing out of sync. Instead of the people having conversations, they were talking at the same time, than were silent at the same time. However, I thought that the idea was pretty cool and it was interesting to watch.
