Oparty na improwizowanym performance, Display Devices zestawia starannie zaanimowane cyfrowe obrazy z płynącymi, obracającymi się siatkami kolorów, tworząc pikselowy wszechświat, w którym małe, jednokolorowe kwadraty łączą się z obrazami odtwarzającymi zakodowany przekaz o płci, filozofii i fantazmatach. Samce pawi demonstrują swoje pióra, wojownicy przywdziewają bojowe pióropusze, Carmen Miranda zakłada owocowy kapelusz, a wafle kakaowe rozpływają się do postaci płynnego kakao; bogata ścieżka dźwiękowa i nieustannie zmieniające się punkty widzenia przenoszą widza w oszałamiający lot poprzez perceptualną przestrzeń.

Based on a completely improvised performance, Display Devices juxtaposes meticulously animated digital images with floating, spinning grids of color, to create a pixelated universe, in which tiny rectangles of pure color are combined into images which display coded messages of gender, philosophy, and urgently personal visions. Male peacocks display their feathers, warriors don their war bonnets, Carmen Miranda decks herself out in a fruity hat, and cocoa wafers dissolve themselves into cups of cocoa, while a lush musical score and constantly shifting visual perspectives lift the viewer into a dizzying flight through perceptual space.
