“Room of the Little Fears” is a poly media work on the oldest human fear. It examines an experience of emptiness and isolation, conditioned by the traces of early trauma. It looks for causes of discrepency within and among people in the context of statement culture in which self presentation becomes older than any dialogue, and closeness is replaced by surrogates.
“Room of the Little Fears” was made as a result of an experiment in which dramatic approach was combined with elements of sound installation and video duel, while perception is conditioned by the specific position of the audience, placed between two crossed projections in the space of emptiness and/or void. It is also a space of personal projections because there are no wrong answers in the room; every thought is right and the form was created in a way that personal associations of viewers resonated in an open network of meaning. The work was inspired by surrealist films, books of Michael Oulbeck, empirical researches of homospatial thinking, as well as older theories of bisociative principles in art.
