TV Mediatation

TV Meditation is a video installation about the suggestive nature of television. The content of the monitor remains hidden until the viewer puts on special pair of glasses. With the glasses on the viewer can watch a video about a blank screen coming closer to him/her, until the entire screen becomes empty again.

Measurement

In this video installation I measure the financial and the artistic value of Damien Hirst’s diamond skull called ‘For the Love of God’, which is one of the most expensive contemporary artworks. The installation consists of two parts, a televison and a pedestal. The pedestal holds a glass bowl full of apples. As time passes the apples begin to rot and lose weight. The pedestal measures the weight of these apples, and lowers the opacity of the image on the screen.

Viewpoint

In this video installation I experiment with the role of the viewer and the artwork. As the viewers interact with the installation they become part of it as a living statue and the artwork takes their former role as the viewers. Where is the line between these two roles?

Black Hole

“In conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair.” – announced Sol LeWitt. In the Black Hole project I show the amount of time that was required to create the artwork after the concept was made.
