2009, Amsterdam

I used to live in an apartment that had a window looking out onto a blank, grey wall. During the day, shadows of the houses on the opposite side of the street appeared on this wall. By intensively observing this surface, I could determine the hour of the day. I filmed these shadows during a 24-hour period.“View from my window“ is an installation composed of glass plates and video projections. The installation is a three-dimensional map of my apartment.

Objects inside my apartment were replaced by the glass plates, which were suspended from the ceiling by transparent threads.
Texts written onto the glass plates became visible on the walls of the exhibition space, as the video was projected through the glass.

The viewer, as she walked through the installation, became a part of the space, her shadow being projected onto the walls of the gallery.

“View from my window“ presents the visual experience of time passing inside my apartment.
