Animation 1 min 5 sec, Istanbul Bienniale, 2001


The video loop alternates between two drawings. One depicts a prison courtyard, the other one a stage. In both drawings searchlights scan the scene. In the prison courtyard they come from above, on stage they come from below. Every 20 seconds the image starts to spin. The elements of the drawings are reorganized by the centrifugal force of the spin. The prison courtyard becomes a stage becomes a prison courtyard etc. The animation loop is projected from above onto a pile of A3 paper.
