[Bridges] Part I.
This work consists of three parts;

A video of 19 minutes, containing found footage fragments and own recordings. The appropriated footage shows bridge scenes out of movies and documentaries. The original audio track hereby is sustained. These parts are interspersed with a video diary of the same women depicted in front of the bridges, on learning a new language.

A series of ten A2 format (594x420) aluminum prints horizontally placed on the floor, leaning to the wall. The prints are portraying the same woman standing in front of bridges in different parts of the world: USA, Europe and Asia. The pixilated pictures are black and white and the depicted bridges are roughly colored yellow with a marked before the prints where made on the plates.

With the work comes a text in the form of a booklet: [Bridges] Part I. The text is divided in ten short texts, which are reflections on the work [Bridges] Part I. They contain musings, questions, problems, and ideas around the work such as; aesthetics, ethics, tourism vs. immigration, power structures, communication, authorship, time, personal development and other aspects of the work or related to the work.
