Installation: a room with a carpet, chair, lamp and TV.

Walking into the room the TV screen shows static. When the viewer sits on the chair, the screen begins to show live footage of the viewer and the chair. Simultaneously an audiotape begins to play. Sound resembles peaceful, meditative “monk choir”.
Little by little the viewer begins to fade from the screen and eventually disappears entirely. Only the chair is left on the screen. Also the sound fades away.

When the viewer gets of the chair the screen goes back to static.
