Old television tubes
In this installation, the artist successfully reconciles two irreconcilable technologies: digital and analog. A pixel moves down the screen of an old TV image tube. It seems to obey gravity, the same that governs the tube that does not fall to the floor only because it is tied to the ceiling. In this case, both the obsolete cumbersome kinescope and the ultramodern smallest picture element act in accordance with the same law as Newton’s apple.
