Life Box

video installation


This installation consists of two little boxes (6 x 9 cm) that resemble old style music boxes. Upon opening the boxes, the spectator sees two stop motion films consisting of different images from the same location. The difference between the two boxes lies in the soundtrack that accompanies the images. Each film is narrated by a person of the same age and social background, but two different nationalities. For this reason the stories that occur in the same place are nonetheless told in a different manner due to the differences between the native languages and past experiences of the two narrators.
