Ssssshining (2007)

By visually contrasting scurrile antagonisms such as passion and suffering this installation abstracts the question “What is pure life?” Projected onto a sculpture of balloons, big mouths are screaming, shouting, whistling, kissing, groaning, moaning, whispering, crying, quivering. Eyes are crying, laughing, twinkling, wincing. These parts of human faces convey emotions, representing the whole of a human being. The surreal of the installation comments on the very real fact of the mutilated emotional world we live in, in the contemporary [western] urban society...

... and the spectator can become of this close up of emotions.
