Interview with the Vampire
Experience vampire universe through 4 TV channels.
Vampires as the title suggest is a documentary installation about vampires. There are four channels playing on a television. The first one is History Channel where one can learn about the history of vampires and how their concept came to being in different cultures and how the concept of vampires we know today developed through centuries.
The second channel is a channel that displays 2 of our best interviews with people in Shanghai and their experiences as “vampires” in their lives. On this channel the term “vampire” is a metaphor to certain parts of human identity that makes the person feel different from others.
The next channel is a “medical channel” where the viewer can learn about people who suffer from an illness called porphyria which is a disorder that affects the production of “heme” that is a part of hemoglobin.The effects of these diseases, if left untreated, can be devastating.The malfunctions in the body’s chemistry cause the skin to be extraordinarily sensitive to sunlight, with a result that exposure to even mild sunlight can disfigure the skin, cause the nose and fingers to fall off, and make the lips and gums so taut that the teeth, although no larger than ordinary, look like they are jutting out in a menacing, animal-like manner. Some of these people consider themselves vampires. On this channel one can learn more about their lives.
The last channel is out MTV Music Channel, maybe the most simple of all. One can enjoy songs of the vampire universe here.
