An Immense Majority

1987, 7:36 min, color, sound

"An Immense Majority isolates certain social responses to entertainment media, in its ironic insistence by the on-screen character that he wants greater authenticity than that provided by TV. Often people’s greatest fear in confrontation with their own actual participation in television (or video) is that they will not know how to act, that they will be perceived as insufficient. This tape activates the viewer’s response to that sentiment through its emphases upon acting, upon the glamorizing role of technology, and upon the idea of one’s image of self (as a polyvalent expression, realized through portraiture, dress, personal style, makeup, comportment, and social action)." —Tony Conrad
