    great concept! it’s interesting thinking about what the tv has to entertain itself all day.

  • http://heyitsalexp.com heyitsAlexP

    Interesting concept. Some of these are a bit melancholy.

  • trip

    i would like to have seen these photos more believable,for example playing video games, watching sports like a hockey game, a tragic news story (911). people eating popcorn watching a comedy movie or a horror movie. a night, couple laying on a couch sleeping, with the tv on.

      Totally agree!
      really cool idea though!

    • James

      I dont see how they’d be more believable.
      Sure they might be more cosmetically engaging, but that’s seemingly not the point of the series.
      You ask for emotion when every face of the ‘viewer’ in each image is blank.
      The whole idea of people just staring blankly at moving images for hours on end with little to no emotional engagement to it or those around around them is really a horrific activity and it’s wonderfully executed in this series.

      • Shaun

        Exactly. The idea seems to be that when we become so totally mentally engaged with the television, there is nothing else around us. Take a picture of yourself watching anything, you go blank stare man. You could even be watching something hilarious, or exciting, its likely you still look like a zombie.

    These are interesting!

    that’s what i like about this series. it’s exactly NOT that.
    i have a feeling that people are more often expressionless while they watch TV. the amount of physical expression and interaction with a TV (ie: sports or reactions to horror movie) is most likely at a bare minimum. if there are any, it’s barely noticeable.

      i also like the idea that the people shown are expressionless. in a lot of ways it’s more realistic and it shows watching tv for what it really is: a mindless activity that wastes time.

    Godfrey Reggio had the same idea 16 years ago in his short film EVIDENCE. Watch it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuI_nCADnW0

    I love the wallpaper and colors of every room. They’re all so different. When architecture mattered to the architect.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
