Ams­ter­dam, THE NETHERLANDS

In Win­ter 2006, artist & men­tor Uta Eisen­re­ich assigned us a project to cre­ate a video work with the theme “Self-Image”.

Self-Image is about how the valid idea of one­self in one’s own eyes and the other’s, the rela­tion­ship between them, how we have our own idea of our­selves, how do we think or want oth­er peo­ple see us, and how do oth­er peo­ple actu­al­ly per­ceive us.

The video was filmed in the style that we usu­al­ly see on tele­vi­sion with anony­mous inter­vie­wees in their back­lit shad­ows. It ques­tions about how real­is­tic from our con­scious­ness of self-image and how reli­able is our con­struc­tion of one’s image from the “facts” being pre­sent­ed to all of us.

It is a crossover between fic­tion and real­i­ty and most of the times a pathet­ic fan­ta­sy.
