2003 [Video projection - 4 minutes with no audio / excerpt: 1 min. 59 sec.]
End wall: 8' x 8' / 240cm x 240cm

This video of a child absorbed in the act of eating begins as a small scale projection at the end of a long narrow room. The image slowly increases in size until it swells beyond the end wall surface, distorting onto the side walls. Only then does the child look up at the camera/viewer with a grin.
