2-ch video installation with surround sound
07:17 min

Two-channel installation ‘Paths’ deals with societal, mental and psychological structures that our control lives – from birth until our final days. Social situations and architectural solutions are filmed in a school, a hospital, an airport and an office. Authorities, social situations, even architectural solutions are examined. It emphasizes the unconscious and dreams as counterparts to the parameters of society through spaces without organized supervision like home, nature or sleep.
