Burn Baby, Burn! 2003/2006
(3 min. demo version)
1-channel video projection, 117 min., stereo, PAL, 4:3
At first glance, the interplay of the image of the unchanging landscape, and the soundtrack charged with associations seems to result in the sound filling the "empty" image with meaning and the image in making the empty lives on a Saturday Night visible, giving them a new face. Seeing the installation at any given point of time during its duration, the picture and the dialogs and the music convey an ambiguous atmosphere. Viewers find themselves gradually slipping into the undefined terrain between the soundtrack and the image and start filling this ambiguity, this gap with new interpretations and meaning.
