In 2053 (2010; 8’ HD video loop, 5 channel) is part of a series dealing with old age and near future. It is a phantasmagoria about how today’s young generation will view things in their late 60’s around the 2050’s. Deriving from the observation that people’s personalities and ideologies tend to stay the same as when they were young the artist attempts to imagine the elderly version of today’s teens. The series contains several small sized aquarelles and 5 detailed portraits of imaginary characters painted in oil. Based on the 5 portraits was created a 5 channel video animation, that is an interview with these characters.
