You Will Be Possessed By Love In 30 Seconds

2002
Video

‘At first glance, the piece seems like a simple video projection without sound, in a dark space. It begins with a title ’You will be possessed by love in 30 seconds’, which appears on the screen in pink on a black background. After the 30-second countdown, suddenly the screen flashes and the word LOVE is imprinted on the viewer’s retina. The word remains in the viewer’s eye, changing colour for several minutes, appearing to be projected onto the viewer’s surroundings’.
