A room is built inside the gallery space. It is entered through an automatic door that opens in the manor of a garage door. Inside is an electro-mechanical construction. The lights are lowered and the top portion of the object spins at 300 rpm, projecting television onto the walls of the room. At that rotational speed, 12 distinct and continuous frames of video are seen encircling the room. The effect is similar to being on the inside of a zoetrope. The images are tuned from the broadcast television spectrum and are selected in a preprogrammed sequence by means of custom built microcomputer embedded into the video projector circuitry.The orchestration of events are determined by polling user input in a second microprocessor circuit.
