Who’s Afraid of RGB plays with references to colour field painting, abstract expressionism, minimal and conceptual art (specifically Barnett Newman’s series of paintings “Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue”), but also to genres of popular culture such as cinema in general and horror film in particular, and most specifically to Disney’s cartoon Three Little Pigs and the film adaptation of the black comedy Who‘s afraid of Virginia Woolf— self-referentiality of the artwork/medium, thus also to the self-referentiality in the viewers themselves, references to other artworks, genres and to scientific fields such as here to the field of psychophysiology. The latter deals with the relationships between psychological processes and the underlying physical functions. It describes how emotions, changes in consciousness and behaviour are related to brain activity, circulation, breathing, motor skills and hormone release. Like many of my other video works, Who’s Afraid of RGB is about the physical nature of the electronic image and sound, respectively, and its analogy to physiological processes in the viewer or listener, whether on a motor, visceral or sensory level.
