TV Mountains, 1998/2000

installation, dimensions variable

production: author and Lahden Taiteilijaseura, Lahti, Finland

Sculpture/installation TV MOUNTAINS is made in the period between 1998 and 2000 in Holland and Finland. The screens of the old television sets and the monitors were covered with the 10 cm thick concrete layer. Many of those different sized elements, scattered in the space, form a small mountain landscape. Author wanted to recycle wasted technology and „bring it back to the nature” in form of a petrified landscape. Covering of the Chernobyl nuclear central with enormous quantity of concrete (several dozens of meters thick), that created a huge artificial mountain, was the inspiration for this work. In 2000 TV mountains were exhibited in front of the „Museum of the Radio and TV”, during the exhibition of the public sculpture, in Lahti, Finland.
