Penelope Umbrico, Views from the Internet (from home improvement websites) 2008.
Signals Still is a set of images of the screens of TVs for sale on Craigslist. As the substrate on which one sees the image, the screen both sifts and registers the result of the sift. I was drawn to the TVs that were turned on but expressed no image, only signal. Emitting eerie light, they are present but mute, they hum or hiss but tell no story. I wonder what invisible signals are received and projected, what necessary signals are sifted out by way of the medium’s inability to register the sign. – Penelope Umbrico
