(1 video beamer, 3 slide projectors – of which: 2 carousel projectors,
each with 81 slides, 60 x 80 mm ;
1 slide projector for back projection,
1 slide with video insert, approx. 9 min. loop)
media installation combines two relatively small, parallel slide projections
with one wall-filling back projection shown at an angle of 90° to the
The two smaller projections show a sequence of snapshots in which various people’s hands find, compose or read messages written on notes. Two messages repeatedly crop up: ‘It’s over’ and ‘Let’s start all over again’. The hand-written messages appear on yellow adhesive Post-It notes and are signed with initials like ‘T’, ‘S’, ‘M’ or ‘R’. The question of who is communicating with whom about what can swiftly turn into a complex and constantly changing story.
This puzzling and intensely spun communication is reflected in the ostensibly
static, wall-filling back projection: a glance in a paper recycling bin
where various kinds of paper waste from offices and homes is mixed up
with coloured Post-It note lets.
