Narcissus (Tautology)

Manuel Saiz

2008, 04:04 minutes, colour


Documentation of installation with video projector and haze machine, 4 minutes 4 seconds.

Inside a dim foggy room a video projector suspended from the ceiling projects images of different parts of the very same device. These are high definition delicate close ups of its lenses, controls, bracket… recorded with the same theatrical look, lighting and position than the one existing in the room. The work depicts an enclosed and self-contained dimension, a world of unattainable otherness.
