SHIFT OF ATTENTION
In one take of 50 minutes a woman is filmed while listening to an actor who’s reading a transcription of her own monologues of memories of Los Angeles. Her stories were recorded on several occasions during two years after she came back from a long stay in Los Angeles. Her face, on the video-image, becomes a projection-screen for the viewer like the city of Los Angeles in the stories has become a facade onto which to she can project all her own desires and longings. The experience of time in the video for the viewer is parallel to the experience of time for the woman while listening to the stories.
