Moving Images (2015)
2-channel video installation
one hired instructor
visitors 

Two video projections opposite of each other show pre-recorded performances, faces of different people fighting for attention, images downloaded from the internet, and different colors.  A voiceover instructs visitors to relate to the projections, to analyze them and reflect on their reactions to them, to perform in front of them, and to carry out different actions (standing still, dancing, kneeling down, walking around) while looking at them in order to experience how these actions influence their reactions to the projected images. 

An instructor is hired to make sure that all visitors follow the instructions.  At certain times throughout the performance, the instructor pauses the installation and engages the visitors in a group discussion about their experience of the work.
