Sich selbst vis-a-vis (One’s self vis-a-vis)

2-channel video loop

Side by side locked of shots observing two children at play. On the left, a little girl’s presence is silent, assuring and consistent. A little boy’s world on the right screen is chaotic, closer and vibrant. He wanders in and out of frame. A contrasting of their different worlds and behaviour becomes inevitable. But it’s also a meditation on the similarities.
