Dejan Vekić “Under Earth”
Internet café – Interior space (Sarajevo)
August 22 – September 20, 1998
With the video installation, “Under Earth” the author tries to throw the view of the earth into another dimension. Two open barrels are connected, creating a wide tube which is set up below the average eye-level of the spectator. At one end of the barrel is found a monitor on which pictures can be seen only from a distance of a couple of meters – through an opening in the opposite end. The opening of the barrel in the first plane represents the real dimensional surface from which we start out, and at the same time a metaphor of a mirror through which we look into another dimension, the second plane – a video picture which represents the deformed vision of the same surface.
