city viewing

- 2017 -

The video work "cityviewing" deals with different urban views. The work consists of two screens, which are perpendicular to each other. Each monitor displays a different city view. On a screen, the viewer sees recordings of several surveillance cameras. In the monitor one can see four videos, which have been recorded in different places by several static cameras and are reproduced in black and white and without sound. The camera assumes a mechanical and immovable position. In contrast, the viewer sees at the other monitor a place from four different perspectives. The recordings are in color and with original sound. The camera is movable and becomes part of the transient people.
