1. Situation Comedy – a humorous drama based on situations that might arise in day-to-day life.
2. A form of programming designed to educate and confuse the young, exposing them to the realities of life as a humiliating and circuitous experience.
SITUATIONAL AESTHETICS explores British situation comedies of the late 20th century, appropriating and re-purposing existing material to weave alternate narratives and scenarios around characters and settings, allowing familiar tropes and scenes to prompt works that expose the ever-present subtexts of humiliation and thwarted desire.
