From a mere technical point of view the TV/video screen comes alive by a controlled beam of electrons in the cathode ray tube. For Energy! an uncontrolled high voltage discharge of approx. 30,000 volts exposed photographic paper which was then arranged in time to create new visual systems of electron organization. Even though the result is abstract it tells a universal story older than the world itself.
