Artist Statement:


    An installation is based on the concept of an electronic town meeting. The viewer can witness and participate in a community discussion on the issues of waste disposal and pollution. The ongoing discussion is stored in the computer as a multimedia document including digital video. The viewer watches a base documentary of interviews with civic leaders. The viewer is in control of the viewing process and may stop the “meeting” and respond by video-recording him or herself into the piece. Since this is an interactive environment, the video clip is not inserted into a linear path, but into the category chosen by the viewer/participant.
