audio: Time Zones, Negativland, Escape From Noise album/cd, Seeland Records, 1987
In 1994 I made a video for Negativland's "Crosley Bendix discusses the copyright act" (The letter U and the Numeral Two, 1992) This video was made without their notice.
This was the first video work I ever presented.
By October 2002, Alexandre Estrela (artist and friend living in New York) meets Mark Hosler from Negativland during a presentation of some of their videos at the Anthology Film Archives in New York, and tells him about my old video. Mark asks me to send the video.
A month later Negativland invites me to make a video from any audio work of my choice. I choose Time Zones.
Time Zones is about time and size, United States versus Soviet Union, the cold war, the use of media as a vehicle for psychological warfare and the use of computers to control the "imperfections" of men.
