LOOKS as a backprojection on perspex
in Galleri KunstVerket Oslo 2002
"Looks" - is a videoprojection, a field of white light built into the wall. Disconnected from the face and body a pair of eyes look at you.
They smile, they observe they withdraw to merge with the next couple of eyes, originating from a different person. The absence of skintone, facial features and body dematerializes the individual. Still, the pair of eyes looking at you communicates feelings and personality.
