The piece is a play between social media aesthetics and our own body. The fascination with our own image is like a jelly substance, that distorts our senses. Often enough the relationship between screen and viewer is like the relationship between a parasite and its host. In gloomy moments when we are thrown back at ourselves, like during the pandemic in 2020, we tend to stick to our screens. Or do the screens rather stick to us? Sight halfway blurred, thoughts numb and endlessly reflecting themselves.

Single-channel audiovisual video
HD Video, 3:16 min.

The video is an exploration of the invisible. A simple inanimate object in a seemingly familiar environment. Yet we never see the workings beneath the surface – the conspiracy of processes, the boogie man’s plan. What does it want? It most likely does not want anything. Wanting is a deeply human condition. It just evolves out of itself and then revolves around everything else until it swallowed the whole world.
