Through The Looking Glass

Maria Ylikoski

‘Through the looking glass’ is an attempt to examine the constant inner monologue/dialogue taking place within us. More than with anyone else, we talk with ourselves. More than with anyone else, we battle ourselves. One actor plays two sides of the same person, Me and Self, engaged in discussion in this two channel video installation.
