Can you hear me?

digital video work, 1 minute


Staging a Zoom-Call with myself, I let splinters of me interact with each other.Versions of myself meet in the virtual room. Trying to form a connection, they can not seem to overcome the threshold separating them, their dialogues never meet. While one asks “Can you hear me?” another one negates, nods or informs the others of a lost signal.
In the concrete world, the separation between them would be the flow of time that places them in a linear, consecutive order. In my video work “Can you hear me”, that notion is the digital. While it gives them the room to encounter free of the orders of time, the technical itself becomes a symbol of their separation.
