This video shows the artist wiping and cleaning the inside of a tube TV by reaching his arm through a small opening on the back of the TV set. The artist’s incapability to view his own act of wiping denotes the futility of one’s intervention in a system. As the video is played on the same tube TV, the work creates an immediate illusion for the viewers.
