technology
Interactive visual installation compose by:

Inkjet print on PVC (110×160 cm), single channel video, color, PAL, HD, 20 min, monitor 9’, computer tracking system.

A monitor is installed following a photograph of a women reclining on a sofa, with her back to the viewer. The participant might move freely (all directions) the monitor in order to perceive a different image, from that in the photograph. Although the moving image that appears on the screen corresponds to the still shot, the video works as a window enabling the observer to see beyond it. By moving the monitor, the observer becomes a voyer.

Brackground noise and music seem to come from a domestic environment or, who knows, from a painter studio.
