Observation of the Observation: Uncertainty

Observation of the Observation [1]


This video shows a video art work created by Peter Weibel. By this art video anyone can observe self-perception from a third-person perspective. There are three video monitors and cameras are arranged in a circle way so that anyone can observe himself from the behind and they are able to interface with the piece, and position of their bodies.

“The cameras and monitors are juxtaposed in such a way that the viewers are unable to see themselves from the front, no matter how much they twist and turn. The self-observers see different parts of their bodies, but never their faces. Shut inside a room, every point in the room is the observer’s jailer, perspective of their deathly fate.” [2]
