Parallel Projection

Parallel Projection


The project investigates two perspectives: that of the viewer and that of the subject.

Various images are projected on to a plastic sheet placed in front of a subject.

The viewer sees an image, a projection of an idea, the placement of an object onto a subject. The flat surface serves as a membrane, catching the image and transmitting it onto the subject. The hazy image washes over the boundary between reality and illusion.

The subject is confronted with a non-permeable barrier, a sheet that blurs all vision and emphasises even the faintest breath into a slow ripple. The resulting feeling is one of insecurity, over-exposure, a deer in the headlights.

In collaboration with Mikael Blomfelt.
