Reconstructing the Truth
single-channel video

Two movies dealing about the question of what is real, The Matrix (1999) by the Wachowski brothers, and World on Wires (1973, orig. title Welt am Draht) by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, are left to the electronic brain of a computer to create, with its countless circuits instructed by a programmer, a reality partly constructed partly real to explore reality and its constructed nature. The outcome is a formal critique of mass-media's reality.
