works: 1993
This work was made during an artist in residence period in Baltimore. The work was situated around the entrance of the main building of the Maryland Art Institute. It was a place where you could meet a lot of people; but because of the steps, there was not really a possibility to communicate. When you approached the building there were two metal frames on each side of the entrance where news and lectures were usually announced. In the metal frames there were enlargements of two video-stills. Outside there were two video-monitors showing a video of a very sad man. When you entered the building there were more stairs and on top of the stairs there was another video-monitor with a motion detector. Every time a person would pass the crying man the sentence was asked: "Hi, how are you doing?"
