For this project we had to rethink and improve a hospital room. I wanted to understand how a visual context can modify our self-understanding and our relationship with the environment, and looked for inspiration from various angles, such as the work of artist Dan Graham, texts of philosopher Michel Foucault, the panopticon, filmtheory, and scientific and psychiatric theories on eye movements.
My final installation showed how a hospital room might slowly and gradually change to slowly put the patient in a different state of mind. This gradual and constant change of atmosphere, rythm, time-frame, is hardly noticed consciously, but it does evoke a vivid imagination.
