Fictional Aspects, Video, 7 Min., color, 1993
Aspects« was first presented as an audio-installation in a small empty
gasoline station in the country. At the station, which had been out of use
for some time, you could only see two blue oldfashioned loudspeakers, a walkman
and a small postcard showing a radio. From time to time the sound would come
through the slightly opened window, interrupting the visitor's view of the
place, shifting her/him from the idea(l) of a "romantic naturalness"
to a different (though also familiar) construction: a home, a living room,
a sofa and a TV set.
How does one define situations as "real"? And in relation to what? After re-thinking certain "scenes" the audiotape was transfered into a videotape, and transcribed into the text "fictional aspects in documentary material". Text and video attempt to crosscut an insured viewing position—the agreement, we have always already made while watching. To allow the viewer to see—to see her/ himself seeing.
