Text by the artist:
The tape starts as a recording of a modern living-room (with a tv-set) while Louis Armstrong sings about the wonderfull world, home fire, sunshine, deams, kisses and love.
Every time the tv-set comes into focus you hear the sound from the war movie playing on the tv. ittle by littlethe visual and audio images becomes asynchronous.
You hear and see more and more war.The image of war takes over the whole screen and at the end you see the living-room only on a small monitor in the middle of war scenes: living room?
