If television bombards us with information. then this TV situation explicitly shows it. Images of earths' surface and human, especially technological activities on it are described in double captions. which look like stock quotes and differ in language (English and Slovene) and speed.

If television bombards us with information. then this TV situation explicitly shows it. Images of earths' surface and human, especially technological activities on it are described in double captions. which look like stock quotes and differ in language (English and Slovene) and speed. The first line is describing. The second is explaining. The TV situation can be understood as a cradle for somebody discovering the world. The textual material is the translation of Sun Tzu's The Art of War and the compendium of news from the field of telecommunication satellites. The work ends with the image of the control room of the Slovenian military radar for airspace defense and the text: 1997. They are observing you! Turn on your transmitters and observe them!
