Worksheets for the video > Is She Asleep?, 2006
Is She Asleep? is a celebration of madness – the kind of holy trance-like madness which only few people are able to reach. The two protagonists loose themselves in the darkness of a tunnel, but then seem to experience an inner light. A succession of images and sounds leaves the spectator wondering about what they see and hear, but after a while maybe he or she will be able to participate.
The installation consists of a video made by Maria Korporal, projected against a wall, and a cylindrical net structure created by Marina Buening, which encloses the projection ray, as if it was a tunnel with openings. It looks like an airy container, able to hold together images and sounds, and to interact with them in a whole organism.
A project by Zweiart: Marina Buening and Maria Korporal.
