On the Other Side 2012

Single-channel loop, no sound, screen lowered in the floor.

A woman uncovers a transparent glass surface by digging it out of the ground. Curiously, she walks around the edge, unsure of whether the glass will carry her weight, looking tentatively into the grave-like opening. The 1:1 scale and the lateral reversal of perspective allows the viewer to engage and connect with the woman’s fear and curiosity, but also with the tentative movements of her body on the reversal plane of the screen.
