Melodrama #2

Generative / interactive video, 2001

The reality of a condition, the melodrama of its appearance. An un-resolved event turns into itself as a meditative space via a stream of random storylines. "The narrative pressures the surface of reality". [Peter Brooks: The Melodramatic Imagination (1976).] In Melodrama No.2 the viewer interaction contribues to the futile structure of unchained cause and effects. A piano keyboard-like interface let the user trigger random sounds and visuals clips.
