Black TV is a solid object with moving images, including between images, transitions, and sound. In the process of describing a piece of video, how do we represent reality? Or beyond audiovisual experience? Which one can we really trust? A TV? A man? Imagination? The initial idea was derived from reaction videos and live video streaming. How do videos control the experience of interaction? The film terms, such as long shot, zoom in, and cut, were manipulated and images were forced to function as these terms in order to create the sense of disorientation to mislead viewers.
