Marjatta Oja

‘Conversations’ consists of two overlaid videos projected onto rectangular screens that are leaning against a wall, one horizontally and one vertically.  The screens allow for the characters within the film to exist in physically separate spaces. The work deals with how to designate a space for oneself.
