CHANGE OF SCENE, FRAME, SPECTATORSHIP
“Who is he?”
“What is he doing?”
“Why is he doing that?”
When making the Postcard Realities I unintentionally drew quite some attention. People tried to get a glimpse of the results on my camera, and many took pictures of me making the pictures.
I imagined it would be interesting to document this process, and ask people for assistance. If they stopped to watch me, I asked them to hold the cutout postcards in front of the camera.
In this way they weren’t just observers. The became participants in the actual creating of these new realities.
