Come On Touch It

Ian Murray

1983, 34:00 minutes, colour, English


Come On Touch It... is an examination of televison's mechanisms of social control, and is a study for a 24 hour TV channel. Constructed from 8 layers of visual material and 7 layers of audio information, the tape takes us through the artist's answering of a standard personality inventory. The same inventory is used by most parole officers, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists. A dense, powerful and complex work which allows the audience to consider its own relationship to the astonishing forces at work in most of the media we encounter today.
