The second episode of BIG is a « re-live » performance.

With BIG Superamas is modelling the space of imagination and emphazises the codes and conventions it contains.

By using the mode of loop which is used for any rudimentary and easily recognizable scenes (soap operas, reality shows, clips) it is reconciling the experience of suspense of tv broadcasts (the viewer who gets carried away be the performance while lying on the sofa) with the suspense of cinema (a performance seen over and over again).

The very interest of Superamas is lying here in the inevitable identification which is suggested by showing a succession of arousing desires.

The viewer is forced to look at moments of dance and life, which under normal circumstances would not raise lots of interest…by doing so the attention is focusing onto details of behaviour, intentions, of patterns which can be identified very easily by the spectators.

Superamas analyses what we understand least of all (emotions, joy, heaviness…) with an open critical eye and with much sympathy for all it is observing.
