A radio and television term for an intentional pause during live broadcasts, the “six-second delay” is the brief interval between the “actual” event and the aired content. This engineered lag provides an editing buffer for program managers to correct for unexpected (or forbidden) content or technical errors before transmission. Though delays carry political implications of censorship or the projection of false narratives, the deliberately interrupted continuity of a “live” experience more broadly questions the notion of reality and truth. This temporal snag or manufactured “do over”— designed to edit out moments of absurdity, incongruity, and spontaneity — might even be taken as evidence supporting simulated reality theory or the existence of multiverses. In Six Second Delay, Cervino presents new sculptures inspired by the mechanical, temporal, social, philosophical, or poetic experiences suggested by broadcast delays and related systems of transmission, relay, and frequency networking.
