Unity Through Strength

1981-82, 6:30 min, color, sound

In Unity Through Strength, Marton explores television, information and human experience. Juxtaposing text and appropriated television imagery that has been highly processed, Marton challenges what he terms "fabricated aspects of television reality and its deadly hypnosis" in a formal and psychological deconstruction of the media. Manipulating grainy off-air footage of street violence and the bland "Big Brother" tones of a television announcer, he fragments TV's rigid structures until they disintegrate into pure electronic form.
