The pictures representing this installation do not reveal the actual set up as the installation was to be experienced in near darkness.
Visitors enter a completely dark antichambre with, to the right hand side a black wall with seven slits of variable width to look through. Neither slit reveals the whole installation which is in continuous movement. A light, mounted on a small car driving along a round truss, perpetually circles (duration of one rotation: 1’41”) around a small television displaying a videoportrait of a woman’s face – and sheds light on the tv set . The displayed video portrait itself shows the same rotation of light on the woman’s face. The only light that can be seen is through the slits in the wall. A soundscape completes the experience.
A video of the project will be added later.
