"Darko Fritz's works are shaped from the difference between the slowness of the body and the technological acceleration of time. They are mimetic investigations of semiotic systems and communication structures which infuence culture." (Inka Schube "The Borderline Difference").
The "End of the Message" project (1995-2000) by Darko Frtiz investigates the behaviours and movements of people when faced with old and new media in both culturally significant space and public space. This work demonstrates a committed consideration of the practice of surveillance, and an artistic approach to the task of archiving media.
"Can every work of art be considered a programme? If the answer is yes, to what system of transmission does it belong?" (Leonida Kovač "Reading the End of the Message")
