Egotuning is a self-help-project. The video shows the preparation of a variable collection of cups. All cups are engraved with renowned art awards and art stipends – best rabbit breeder award turns into ”Transmediale Award” and a cup for football hobby kickers becomes the ”Turner Prize”. While looking occasionally at the 67 cups, the ego of the artist is getting tuned.
