Between Truth & Falsehood

 

Video Installation 2010

     There are small, drilled holes on a steel plate.

The steel plate consists of one side of a box, and I installed an LCD monitor inside. The filming for documentation shows the work process of how I went about drilling holes into the steel plate. The audience is only able to watch this through the holes.

 

     The video causes them to understand the process of drilling holes in steel.  In the end, the audience begins to doubt my work process, because the punching process I had shown is nonsensical. However, it’s interesting that people believed it in the first place. The audience cannot, in fact, say whether this is true or false. It confuses them, and begins to make them curious.  Eventually, they need to make a choice as to whether they believe the film or not.
