It's So Reality! 

6-channel video

14'10" each

2015

The project is filmed in a manner similar to a reality TV show. The lead characters are three families who are all watching the same footage, which is segments of actual reality TV shows. The 6-channel video installation creates an image theater of information overload. Each family continues to talk and interact, as if engaging in an alternative critique of the reality TV shows, and viewers are unable to distinguish whether it is a pre-arranged script or real reactions. This contemporary entertainment spectacle of response and ridicule is just like the slogan: "It's So Reality!"
