The Chinese Room (installation)

Långström Minna

The Chinese Room is a participatory installation and a 3D-animation in which the viewer steps into a space and assumes the role of a voyeur in a surveillance room. The user can change the view and follow events in different places. There is also a security camera which films the viewer so they appear in the animation too; both watcher and watched.

Minna Långström is a media artist who works with short film and installation. Through visual experimentation, her works often deal with screen based visual culture in relation to the subjective human experience. Some of her participatory installations focusses on social perspectives on technologically mediated narratives, while her more recent short films and immersive installations deal with certain political histories - and their influences on the present.
