Two video screens facing each other from a distance of about one meter. They are each set on two square pipes that project from opposite walls. On each screen a white human figure without hair other than their eyelashes is
displayed in front of a white background. It seems as if the same figure is displayed twice. Synchronously the figures speak of the advantages of the “virtual community“. Only when standing between the screens and observing the situation closely, it becomes clear that the seemingly identical beings act differently. Their wording is also very slightly different. What acoustically is hardly noticable, differs enormously with respect to its contents.
