Vis-A-Vis-Verification

Video Installation (6:20 min), 2020 mit Juho Lee

The process of "vis-a-vis verification" is basically about the way trust relationships are created in a system. This requires that a real social interaction takes place between an already verified person and the person newly added to the system, i.e. both persons face each other "vis-a-vis" and perform a certain action. Not all individuals can be included in the feedback loop. Some are too fragile and threaten to break, others are too strong and could break. These forms of becoming presuppose that in a moment of experience the bodies go through the feeling that it can suddenly be over - at the ends of the world or of the people.
