Since 2013 Berlin based Japanese artist Seiji Morimoto has been taking pictures of Braun tube televisions (cathode-ray tube, CRT televisions) that are everywhere on the streets of Berlin. Many of them are thrown out even though they are still working.

In this exhibition Morimoto shows a sound-video installation with several CRT televisions, using image sequences in which hundreds of photographs of CRT televisions, accompanied by a live scan of the changing electron beam-tube noises.
