Video Series, Ongoing project / from 2006

 

In these videos children are shown in their daily lives, achieving some kind of personal rituals. The formal treatment of images reveals the magic that releases the reality.

In order to create spaces for installations incorporating videos from this series, I started making labyrinthic architectures as a spatial structure to view films on monitor or projection. I had to find or construct passages, corridors and small rooms (sort of labyrinthic fragments) in order to enter the viewer into the fantasy world of my videos.
