Real Fake Flag
3-channel video installation
Based on the 'additive color mixing' every tv/monitor produces images by mixing a RED, GREEN and BLUE color of the actual image.
The installation 'Real Fake flag' shows each color in a separate monitor. The two missing colors are inter-editted frame by frame (f.e. a single frame of the green and the blue image is edited into the red video). We see a flickering image. The human brain cannot distinguish between the fast changing colors. It mixes the red, green and blue image to the ‚real‘ flag - but it is not there.
The original 80s tube monitors represent a decade of the American Dream.
