There is no escaping here. (2012) (2012)

Channel TWo (CH2) is a studio/research construct focused on mixed reality, media, design, development, and distribution, authorized formats + unauthorized ideas, systems of control + radical togetherness. Channel TWo is loosely aligned with the concept of over-identification, Slavoj Žižek’s description of a tactic intended to reveal the hidden nature of dominant ideologies -- not by pointing to them but by becoming extreme forms of them. CH2 Projects intersect joyful/play-oriented aesthetic experiences and user interfaces with challenging social undercurrents. // concept: "There is no escaping here." is recursion without origin, in and out of the box, looping forever. While instructions for playback mode are provided, it gets you nowhere. // form: "There is no escaping here." can be installed and configured in relationship to the space in which is resides. The tape is set to automatically rewind every 40 minutes as long as the electricity keeps flowing. This work is maintenance free and requires little responsibility.
