Karlsruhe, Installation, D 2011

A person is sitting in front of a semi-transparent/one-way mirror. He or she is looking themself in the eye, thus watching themself watching themself. Given that the person is aware of the fact that behind the mirror, the camera/the recipient is looking him or her in the eye, he or she cannot help but stage themself in some way or another. The session/selfportrait lasts a full hour. Anything is permitted (talking, making faces, etc.) as long as the one and only rule „remain seated and watch yourself“ is followed.

Felix Grünschloss, *1977 in Stuttgart, has studied Media Art at HFG/ZKM Karlsruhe
