The Window and I (2015)

The Window and I, Anna Ulrikke Andersen (2015), HDV, 03:00.

The Window and I (2015) is a self-portrait investigating how the sets of windows filter air, light and view, and affect the body. Filmed in London, UK, Alfaz Dei Pi, Spain and Budor, Norway, the work is a commentary and critique of Christian Norberg-Schulz’s tendency to generalise experience, replacing his use of WE with the I. Alternative views and frames are created with digital film,  X-ray, moving from exterior through interior and eventually into the body.
