  • IS THIS A GOOD DAY TO START A WAR

    Video Installation, 2009 || Single Channel DVD, 10:30 min

    The video is created from Silhouette images of actors who are placed in a virtual environment. The work is inspired by both realities and cyberspace; the icons are created inside a flat but layered landscape, the figures are shadows of a violent action. Silhouettes of a high-rise building skyline by night, blue smoke clouds and a small group of people with Mickey Mouse ears, who are playfully swiping at or perhaps actually punching each other. Above the scenery, the light beams of military helicopters are circling coolly and quietly. The work explores the moment before a fight begins, the time for exercising, building up and imitating an imaginary battle scenario, the simulation of a war that might happen. .
