|THE BACKSIDE OF PERCEPTION
An analog video camera is disassembled into its constituent parts while recording. The action does not take place in front of the camera but within, thereby transcending the image. And so does the sound of tools on the casing, which somehow is not located in the image but rather behind it. Usually this kind of place is not shown in movies, which appear to be mere windows. The viewer of the film is situated where the camera was at the recording, so that the body of the camera disappears in between. The video work “The backside of perception” refers to the medium and its boarders.
