Let me introduce myself

Site specific video-installation, dimensions variable, 2016


This work is inspired by neuroscientist Antonio Damasio who introduces the term autobiographical self, where the self (identity) is created from memories and lived experiences during the life of the self. My work is s a video installation with light sensitive sensors. The video is projected on the wall with the sound which stops when visitor enters the room.)visitor cannot see the content of the video) The video with sound turns automatically on when visitor leaves the room. The video contains excerpts from my personal archive in the form of video diaries. The archive is a huge collection of documentary photos and videos of my personal experiences and stories. As the personal and subjective always is unavailable to the other, the visitor could never see what is projected, and the paradox is that it is projected when the visitor is not in the room.
