Searching for an honest man

Participative performance, 2015, dimensions variable

 

On the ceiling of a gallery I put a reflector (strong light source with a spot of  light) which beams spot light towards floor where the audience is situated. The light (diameter of 1 meter) is moving in such a way as if it is looking for somebody or something (prison/border-like situation, etc.) Near to the reflector, I put a camera and defined exposure so that the only proper exposure is on the cast light. What camera captures is live streamed on the monitor on the floor of the gallery, so that the audience can see it.
