SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

The project started in 2006 and is ongoing

RULES

  • still camera

  • own face
  • own texts
  • no cuts, filmed in one take
  • no postproduction
  • duration less than 3 minutes

The expansive video performance project Special Announcements started in 2006 and is a lifetime project. The viewer meets a head which keeps repeating brief sentences, sometimes with her eyes open, sometimes closed. The sentences express loneliness and isolation and the words form monologues with pauses that seem to indicate a desire for a reply from the viewer.
The disconnected and deconstructed phrases are transformed into psychological studies of human behaviour. The sentences turn out to comprise psychological concepts such as denial, negation, compulsive acts, self-fulfilling prophecies and actual or imagined feelings of being observed. The overall title of the series, Special Announcements, suggests that these utterances are important messages to the public.
