Isn't She Lovely?!Afte­ri­ma­ge is a 3 chan­nel video instal­la­ti­on in coo­p­e­ra­ti­on with Maris­ka Hogen­doorn, and is about the thin line bet­ween per­cep­ti­on and inter­pre­ta­ti­on. Flas­hes of faces with dif­fe­rent expres­si­ons random­ly appear on three moni­tors, that imme­di­a­te­ly begin to dege­ne­ra­te into “sme­ars” of color. Becau­se ima­ges appear unex­pec­ted, the visi­tor is almost always ‘too late’, for­cing him to ‘men­tal­ly recon­struct’ the­se blur­ry ima­ges into faci­al expressions.

This pro­ject is exhibited:
