Ola Pehrson - Desktop

Some interesting work by Ola Pehrson is Desktop (image above), an installation consisting of a 10:1 scale model of the Windows 95 interface. The setup is as follows:

The two parts of the installation face each other ten metres apart. Plastic sculptures are suspended on fishing line in front of a Windows green monochrome painting.

The arrangement is filmed and presented in real-time on a computer screen on the other side of the room and gives the impression of a Windows desktop size 1:1.

Obviously what’s particularly interesting here is the layout of the installation which allows the gallery goer / installation user to pass in front of the windows ’set’ and become both observer and observed.
