echo narcissus echo

interactive audio and video wall

Echo Narcissus Echo addresses the way laugh tracks and 'live studio audiences' are used by producers of popular culture to manipulate our emotions. On a surface level the provided laughter from the program induces laughter in the home audience where there may be little or no real reason for it by simply using the principle of laughter begets laughter. On a more subliminal level the provided laughter produces an artificial community for the viewer to feel a part of. I want the visitors of my installation to take with them a state of awareness with which they can use to disengage from this tactic when encountering it in everyday life.
