I was here! <video installation, live video> 2013

Interactive video/live feed installation

I was here! was installed in and created for a former school building. The spectator entered an unimposing room, reminding of an old kitchen or a storage space. A black box with headphones is hanging at one of the walls. Looking in the box the spectators see themselves filmed from the back in black and white. A noise can be heard that is later recognized as a water boiler. Suddenly a person is entering the room behind the spectator, but this person is not in the room for ‘real’, at least not at the same moment. She is a recording of somebody from the past, a ghost that tries to communicate, but only is able to do so by leaving a note.
