I Spy (Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst)

Photography, 2011 Collaboration with Emma B. @ Folge der Generationen, Motorenhalle. Projektzentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Dresden

After our activities in her grandparents' apartment, Emma B. and I showed the photos to several family members and asked them to tell us what they saw in each picture. To Emma's amazement and delight, most of her relatives didn't realize that anything was different than usual (that is to say that Emma was hiding in each room/image): they saw the rooms as they have always experienced them. Naturally, the nine different observations of each photograph are quite subjective: they're full of memories, emotions, excuses and insinuations. Thus, they go beyond what is visible, opening up further dimensions of these private spaces for the viewer.
