350 Lumen

A project in collaboration with Teresa Pistorius. (teresapistorius.com)

What is hiding behind the windows of an isolated house? How do fishes in an aquarium notice the world around them? Is there something dangerous lurking behind a wooden crate in the forest?

The nightly view into strange dwellings calls up deep fear and fantasies. For this project we staged housings in a way that the inside is unknown. Showing that something is living there but where you can't tell what and how. Rooms being lived in by something invisible that has a magical influence on us- a classical horror film motive. We illuminated this motive in a neutral white glare to provoke ambivalent feelings: does something dangerous live there or does the housing rather embody shelter?
