Abstract:
This project is an interactive video installation where, inside a dark room, you face a policeman in the same proportion that you are, thus you are in the same level of power. Then he starts speaking to you and asking the reason you are there, making a lot of questions using his pseudo power. If you don’t say anything the policeman becomes bigger and bigger. This will continues until you start saying something. According to the volume of your voice the policeman size starts to diminish. In this way the power relation is equalized by decibels.
