The Other Side of the Moon

installation (joined wooden chair, dominoes, monitor, camcorder), dimensions variable,
Paks Gallery, Museum Kiscell − Municipal Picture Gallery, Roman church space, Budapest, 1997

A camera records the vision of a wooden chair, and sends it to a monitor opposite the chair. The viewer can see that what
is “broadcast” is not the whole reality, but merely its visible part. The elongated shadow of the chair, composed of dominos,
is invisible for the “all-seeing media”. The camera mediates and selects, restricts and regulates the perceptual experience
of reality, and consequently cannot substitute for it (cf. “media critique”).
