Fantastic TV has been develop during the months of October and November of 2014 at the studio of PIMA (Art and Development Program) as an artist residency project. The artist studio has been transformed as a television set.

Fantástica Tv has been possible thanks to the crowdfunding of a lot of people:

During the two months residency I´ve decided to reasearch about whicht things on TV are interesting or not for me. The most interesting genre I´ve found is the "telebasura", a spanish term to describe non-fiction TV programs which are percieved to be "junk" ( tele-basura= TV-grabage). The programms that would be clasified as telebasura are the ones which disobey the deontologic codes of journalist and which diffuse values influence people in a negative manner. It is associated with reality shows and talk shows. In this category I´ve found the "reality television" as a subgenre that documents unscripted situations and actual occurrences, and often features a previously publicly unknown cast. The genre often highlights personal drama and conflict to a much greater extent than other unscripted television such as documentary shows.

The reality television is a relativ new gender that works between the real and the fiction, without actors and scripts. The audience becomes a voayeur that observates the everyday life and conflicts of commons people. I am talking about programms like the famous Big Brother.

I built a Big Brother Stage on the artist studio and let some " competitors" live there. I´ve filmed some situations on the "house" and an interview of the winner on a soap show.

To finish the project we´ve filmed live the programm "Why yes, why not?" on the studio to show a resumme of the Big Brother on Fantástica TV and to discuss about it with two respected spanish art criticist and curator, Luis Francisco Pérez and Jaime Lavagne.
