My Market Place | 2009

video | 6:30 min

Passersby are asked to describe the locality around them by putting into words what they spot instantaneously.The image detail of the video is thereby chosen so that the viewer isn't able to watch the described situation. Thus he can only picture it by the description of the different persons.

Even though all of them describe the same place, every description is unique. Everybody perceives the place differently, has different points of reference, different interests.
Altogether a serial of portraits has resulted in which appearance, gesture, mimic and personal perception can be observed - also in comparison to the others.
