Maya Rochat stirs our eyes together until they start to melt.
Self Publish, Be Happy TV is our YouTube channel where we commission artists to create short videos. Inspired by early MTV and experimental film, Self Publish, Be Happy TV is a platform for playful and idiosyncratic broadcasting and has shown videos at Tate Modern (Britain), Micamera (Italy) and Atopos (Greece). For episode ten we commissioned Swiss artist Maya Rochat to make A Plastic Tool: a video collage that begins with an erotic dance involving a plastic spatula and a wooden table, then melts us down into a psychedelic inner space with a slow rave soundtrack from Niki Tiphticoglou.
