cinema of weather and virtual objects

http://www.alansondheim.org/virtual.mp4

you say cinema, but this is clearly a video construction;
you say tv, but where are the cameras, the lights and actions;
it is true real weather that is the action;
and it is the lights of the city that are the lights of cinema;
wait you say, but where is the camera of this cinema;
the camera is in the house, i cry, the camera is in the house;
and it is not the camera of cinema, it is the camera of video;
for it is not the camera of television, but the camera of debris;
and where does debris take us, but to the grotesque of the virtual;
surprise of the virtual in the midst of true-real weather;
you say weather, and this is clearly a construction of weather;
the weather is out of the house, the weather is outside;
you say the weather is outside of everywhere and everything;
the weather murmurs its own grotesque of the world (i say);
look around you, the weather's taking over, here are its minions;
here are its minions and here is the image of cinema and tv.
