Hochsitz (raised blind), 2003, ca. 200 x 40 x 50 cm, wood, tarboard




Raised blind

A raised blind is a small protected box, in which one sits and from which one can enjoy a particular view. This box actually also encapsulates the sitter inside. A confrontation with the immediate surroundings is, compared to the situation of just standing around, no longer a direct one.
I attempted to create a situation in which I am able to take in a fixed view without having to give up a direct confrontation with the surroundings.
I wasn't able to maintain this action for long.
