5x17
2003, sound, 9 minutes.
 
This piece is based on five interviews with young people at the age of seventeen.
With my “simple” questions about identity, moral and politics, I wish to uncover new problems leading to new questions that may be more complicated.
I want to point on the fact that their answers are simple on complicated questions. On the other side they make an effort answering.
By editing and cutting in the middle of thezir sentences I have constructed a new meaning in their answers. One voice takes ower form another and makes new connections. Through the composition I have made up a multifaceted voice, which reflects the suspense between them selves and their reality. The voices are in some parts presented upon eacother in many layers and in a repetitive way. What is really back in some parts are their style of talking.
