Thin and Thick Lines, 2011
Mixed media, dimensions variable
Thin and Thick Lines is a video installation exploring the boundaries between two-dimensional and three-dimensional space in relation to lense-based media. The piece uses framing and focus as the classic tools of lens based vision to generate new perspectives and confuse our perception of space and scale.
The installation consists of a site specific framing of window space and a HD-Video. The video shows coloured pieces of pape moving amongst each other. The focus of the video camera gradually shifts between fore-, middle- and background continuously confusing the scale and perception of space. The video runs in a semi-dark room complemented with cut-outs on a window front.
The cut-outs appear as cinematographic images themselves and correspond with the video. Depending on the viewers standpoint in the room the cut outs show different framed clips from the world outside the exhibtion space.
