Description:
The photo is part of a triptych which is part of an installation. The installation is 3.60m x 2.20m x 1.00m, it’s a kind of corridor. The entrance and exit are closed with thin black curtains, to help people to slow down and pause a moment to take it all in. From the outside looking at the installation, the audience sees a triptych that appears to be three negatives. People are free to choose and for me there are two groups: the ones who view from a safe distance and see the negatives. This is the group who are negative themselves and form opinions without seeing and experiencing the other side. The other side is the inside of the installation. When people choose to enter, they represent the curious and positive people who at least take action and find out if there’s is more to the story. There is a soundscape which can be heard clearest inside. It’s a combination of sounds and spoken words. The text is abstract and different languages old and new are mixed. The reason I chose for abstraction is to emphasise feelings and emotions. The installation, triptych and soundscape become one. The three photographs were made with one of the last Fuji FP-100C polaroids. I peeled them to make them transparent and froze them with water. The frozen images represent the cold hard world and at the same time stands for hope, because ice can melt.
