Conceived around the TV as one of the most common daily life media, this interactive installation presented a uniquely new form of "television" decomposing and reassembling TV programs in real-time using information technology.

Video images showing the formation of three-dimensional structures were projected onto a screen in the exhibition space. Based on real-time measurements/analyses from various aspects such as imagery, sound and online feedback of all TV programs that can be received in Yamaguchi, the structures are continuously updated by the second. Viewers could observe the structures from a bird's-eye or worm's eye perspective, and thereby detect an implicit "ambiance" that surrounds us yet that we cannot notice in everyday life.
