"Today, no staging of bodies, no performance can be without its control screen. This is not there to see or reflect those taking part, with the distance and magic of the mirror. No, it is there as an instantaneous, depthless refraction. Video, everywhere, serves only this end: it is a screen of ecstatic refraction. As such, it has nothing of the traditional image or scene, or of traditional theatricality, and its purpose is not to present action or allow self-contemplation; its goal is to be hooked up to itself." [America, Jean Baudrillard]

'Screen' is still in an experimental phase. It is conceived as a video projection of the projection screen on itself. The blank screen is filmed and it's synthetic fabric put in motion by two or four solenoid vibrating elements. Different wave frequencies provoke differences in the generated ripple patterns on the screens fabric.
