House, 35-40 television sets, coaxial cables, splitters & signal booster
Location: 9515 102 Street. Grand Prairie, AB

One House & 35-40 television sets distributed throughout and all tuned to the same channel.
The small flicker of light emanating from each TV is then turned into a ‘pulse’ of light throughout the entire house. As the scenes change, from whatever television program is airing at the moment, the house flashes and pulses as all televisions are in sync with one another. Gives the eerie impressions that the entire house has been gutted to create one vast illuminated space. During commercials it is as if fireworks are going off inside…
