Wet Contact (2002)
A large screen separated in two. A split screen. Two faces - man and a woman, the faces of the authors. Both of them are looking straight into the camera. The camera does not move. In the first minutes nothing happens. The viewer has the illusion they are looking at him. They observe him… They are expecting something from him… Suddenly water slaps the face of one of them. The slaps alternate between the one and the other. Some water slaps are very strong and painful. The lighting changes as if the day is passing. The sound track was created from sound samples recorded from everyday life in conjunction and mixed with music composed by Heinz Weber. In Wet Contact, operating with language close to minimalism, the authors drive the spectators to recognize almost physically the aggression, the loneliness, observing the male and female reaction, pressing them to ask basic questions about existence in contemporary
One, Several, Many Odyssey (2003)
Provoked by the mythological travels of Odysseus, as well as the vernacular use of the word "odyssey," the authors invite people from different nationalities to discuss the topic. All speak their native language - Greek, French, Bulgarian, English, Spanish... they share differing points of view on the subject matter, while quoting parts of the original or interpreting the classical verse. The participants touch upon different aspects of the epic journey - the mental, physical, travel, travel into the past, or in the everyday life. The authors' goal is not to generalize, but rather to expose the variety based on the individuality.
