One channel video installation

Agony of Waiting,
A Vision of the Future, turns the attention on the agony of waiting, to what happens inside a person when nothing happens. When you are not allowed to move or look, when someone else has set the rules. Beneath the surface of the piece lie the expectations, hopes and dreams of the children. Impatience creates a split while curiosity forces you to sneak a look. The work can also be seen as a depiction of psychological power and control. There are millions of refugees in the world whose lives are filled with waiting and uncertainty about their future.
