Colin Heggie - Vane

Colin Heggie, Xtext, video, 1999

Colin Heggie’s Xtext tele(visually)ports the audience into a hypothetical near future where sexual imagery has invaded the living room via the medium of teletext – one of the few media that has so far not been infected by such images. It is the result of an attempt to compete with cultural, corporate and technological evolution. Xtext revels in the innocence of teletext’s graphic limitations, and uses these to camouflage the extreme content.
