Interface (1972) Closed-circuit video installation, glass pane, B&W, silent
The spectator is invited to superimpose their reflection onto their projected image.
Visitors entering the closed-circuit video environment of Interface are simultaneously confronted by two images of themselves: one of which is 'positive' (the video image), and the other 'negative' (their reflection on the glass screen).
While the glass reflects an image in colour with well-defined contours, the indirect, 'ghostly' recorded image in black and white seems more fragile, as if floating in space. As the viewers move backward and forward in front of the glass, they close in on the exact position where their two images are superimposed.
