As is often the case with Bielicky’s works, this work also deals with the sluggishness television forces on it’s viewers. In this work, which adapts Duchamp's "Fountain", all components of Bielicky's later video sculptures are laid out for the first time. Still influenced by Nam June Paik’s irony and sarcasm, the added freedom in the arrangement of the small-screen CRTs and the transmitter-receiver structure will occupy Bielicky for the next few years and inspire, among others, the works "Menora / Inventory", "The Name" and "Exodus".
