Virtual Justice examines the issue of "courtroom trial as media spectacle". It focuses on the transition zone where a viewer's interest shifts from the serious consideration of justice to a preoccupation with the trial as a source of entertainment. In the midst of six different judicial cases the principals in each trial are abruptly transformed into flamboyant entertainers. This video work asks the question: to what extent has media overkill on crime and violence desensitized us to the seriousness of justice?
