Brick Wall (installation)

Vesa-Pekka Rannikko

A man in a red chequered shirt appears simultaneously in two adjacent video projections. The man on the right begins to animate bricks on the wall using a remote control. The man on the left sits watching the brick wall grow. When the brick wall is finished, the man on the right walks straight at the camera until the lens is blocked. The man on the left then stops the shoot using another remote control.
