Hold took this initial concept one stage further by adding one more movement.
This third movement created a situation whereby the viewer would (dependent
on the position of the carriage) have the need to bend over in order to
view the screen of the TV which, for a short period, is facing the floor
The title Horizontal hold takes it's name from the adjustment knob (on
earlier black & white sets) used for correcting and eliminating the horizontal
flicker that was common on these early sets.
On completion of Horizontal Hold I realized that the television
should now depict the entire surface of the globe by circumnavigating
the (video picture) of the earth through every possible position, so that
when the TV was pointing directly upward, it should portray the North
pole. When the TV is pointing completely downward it would show Antarctica.
In order for the movement of the television to remain in synchronization
with the video picture a computer needs to be employed, which continually
adjusts the speed of the motors, compensating for inaccuracies in the
mechanical movement of the carriages and the slight fluctuation in video
tape speed. Year of production: 1996
