THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF RON AND SAFY # II

Video loops are being played back and mixed in various combinations and being shown on four monitors and also projected onto a big screen. The material used for these loops originate from documentaries, newscasts or any TV sequence that does not show the channel logo. The original sound remains and is recorded also in loops and is being mixed live.

This concept was developed in 1987, and since then the "Wonderful World of Ron & Safy" has been performing twice a year at venues in Berlin, New York, Amsterdam or Jerusalem. Every show is like no other, because the video artists Ron Katsir and Safy Etiel are mixing live and are constantly working on new loops.

During the show the focus of sound and picture can suddenly change from an introspective field observation to a gory ethnic spectacle, or even from war to peace. This makes it a profoundly stunning experience - in real time.
