Description:
Frame presents a snapshot of my private daily life. However, most of the screen is covered by a big black square placed in the center. This self-reflexive void remains black and empty until the end of the video and directs the viewer’s attention towards the margins of the screen. The audience has no choice but to interpret the actions according to the pieces of information that they receive from the “frame”. Frame examines mechanisms of viewing and understanding the other.
