TALKING PICTURE (THE STRUCTURE OF FILM VIEWING)
1984, Europe Space, Melbourne, Australia


"So I am also doing a shadow picture presentation - myself sitting in front of the projector. This idea also comes from my desire to be the audience and performer at the same time, so I can look at what I am doing. I am the subject as well as part of the audience with you: you can look at my shadow and listen to my amplified voice together with me."(T.I.)

(Installation/Performance/Videotape)
Kwangju Biennale, Kwangju, Korea, 1995
"Two cameras and two monitors are placed facing each other at a distance. There is a sentence on the wall between them: THIS IS A CAMERA WHICH SHOOTS THIS. On the monitors the identical images of the camera are seen showing the real thing and the image side by side. The sentence is an equivalent of the video structure, a camera shooting another camera which shoots back at the first camera: an endless structure as the objects "this" turns into the subject of the next sentence." (T.I.)
