On top of a stack of books on a chair stands a video monitor that abuts a small table. The surface of the table holds water, forming a small rectangular pool in front of the monitor. The monitor depicts a woman’s face, resting on her folded arms. The titles of the books represent the woman’s moral background. The woman gazes dreamily at her spectators, her surroundings, and the water reflecting her image.
The viewer wonders whether the piece is complete; if something more will happen. Then, the woman purses her lips and blows and real ripples arise on the surface of the water. So the video image is connected to the physical reality, engaging the woman’s thoughts, gaze, and breath.
