ATA’s Television  is a continuous elegy of nothingness. A search for the spiritual and the existential. There are no rules to our television show , there is only shades of gray , ambiguity and doubt.. Usually in the summer we play reruns but this year we  showed a combination of music videos that we liked  and various shorts from various independent artists.

“if it were so, as conceited sagacity, proud of not being deceived, thinks, that we should believe nothing which we cannot see with our eyes, then first and foremost we ought to give up believing in love. If we were to do so and do it out of fear lest we be decieved, would we not then be deceived? We can , of course, be deceived in many ways. We can be deceived by beleiving what is untrue, but we certainly are also deceived by not beleiving what is true.We can be deceived by appearances, but we can also be deceived by shrewdness , by the flattering conceit which is absolutely certain it cannot be deceived. Which deception is more dangerous? Whose recovery is more doubtful, that of one who does not see, or that of the person who sees and yet does not see? What is more difficult – to awaken someone who is sleeping or to awaken someone who awake, is dreaming that he is awake? Which is sadder, the sight  that promptly and unconditionally moves one to tears, the sight of someone unhappily deceived in love, or the sight that in certain sense could tempt laughter, the sight of the self-deceived , whose fatuous conceit of not being deceived, would indeed be ridiculous and laughable if the ridiculousness of it were not an even stronger expression for horror, since it shows that he is unworthy of tears.”
