Melhus’ videos are defined by a sampled pop aesthetic. The expansion and habitualization of media reception are reflected upon using formal and thematic repetitions with a playfully regressive attitude. Audio fragments, combined in an associative way, are combined with his own video material, in which he takes on all roles himself. The borrowings stretch from the music video to the action genre or come from fairy tales, such as Das Zauberglas, where the television becomes a mirror in a narcissistic pseudo dialog.
