Video installation, based on the location of the former military airfield in Deelen.
In collaboration with Jane Lee and Kristina Michakova.
A landscape is composed of 3 pieces: The floor, the wall, the ceiling. The grass, the trees, the sky.
They overlap horizontally - it has always been this way.
Afterimage explores this façade and flattens its depth. Afterimage creates new landscapes.
Do we have a say in our own visual experience?
Could the images displayed on our sensory transmission devices be a conscious choice?
The landscape or subject that the sight beholds is inseparable from what we already know.
There is no place for a singular objective truth here and the act of seeing is established on merely instinctual reflexes.
What we think we see is pre - learned, pre-decided and the images- preexisting.
The act of seeing is not immediate. We use records and fragments of memory as our main view on the world.
Three questions remain unanswered:
So, is there one reality?
What do others see?
And what are we missing out on?
