Portret

 

video-object

1992

 

The video sculpture 'Portret' consists of a glass display case measuring 30 X 25 X 25 CMS, mounted on the wall at eye level by means of a steel framework.

In the glass case we see a very small black & white monitor, with the image on its screen as depicted on the demo-videotape.

The monitor is placed behind two lenses, which form part of the glass case. These lenses enlarge and distort the video image, depending on the position of the observer.

There is no sound.
