Hotel Room 113
Steirischer Herbst
Graz, Austria

Comissioned by: Steirischer Herbst 2011

With surrounding walls, a ceiling and a floor the hotel room is much like any other room. What perhaps differs it from another room is its impersonal interior and its constant flux of people. Coming and going. Unpacking and packing, faceless people filling the space, sharing the same room in different times, without leaving a trace.

This is the setting of Blindsight, a work that picks up on this trace and creates a link with something previous, at the same time constructing an intimate experience of the personal and the present.

Blindsight was commissioned by Steirischer Herbst in 2011, a new version of the work will be presented in Hotel Holt at the Sequences Festival in Reykjavik in 2013.
