While we attempt to restrict water use through pacts and treaties, sometimes we just can’t stop that slow leak on the roof. Termite TV explores a variety of water-y issues, both poetic and political. (29 min.)
As our basic needs become more and more dear, our modes of survival must be creative, efficient, and self-sustaining. Termite TV examines what food means to us and to the media, and what our current conditions imply. (29 min.)
Housing problems, alternative architecture, concepts of home, and sanctuaries are all featured in Termite TV’s final third of THE BASICS TRILOGY. (29 min.)
