TV Tube: The television is yet another manipulator in our domestic sphere. In essence many have substituted spectating for participating in life. Furthermore television has narrowed the interactive human experience. Jerry Mander has written, “Television isolates people from the environment, from each other, and from their own senses.” (in Four Arguments for Elimination of Television). TV Tube offers an alternative viewing for the dysfunctional unit: a live presence that cannot be turned on and off. This 24-hour experience shows a society interrelating and working together productively.
