‘Sibling Rivalry’ Installation at Culture Night 2011

Posted by Steven Quinn on

This is a setup created to reveal the differences between the viewed and viewer.
There is somewhat of a role reversal here which asks you participate in an installation.
An installation where you are forced to adopt the role of either little brother or big brother.
It is quite a simple set-up really with two rooms, Two screens & two cameras.
A live CCTV camera in one room is reverse projected inside a peephole within the second room, While within that peephole the viewers eyes are filmed & projected onto the wall of the first room.
The installation itself was in a the Old Exchange and Assembly Rooms which is a large empty Victorian building in the centre of the Cathedral Quarter.

This video loop was made to accompany the installation itself.
It was r̶i̶p̶p̶e̶d̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶ inspired by a scene from Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’.
