This work is: - a life art performance that is streamed (from berlin) - an installation of a panopticon where different videos that belong to the same performance cycle are displayed
The installation is linked to a cycle the artist has been working on since 2015. The individual chapters contain videos, prints and drawings.
The installation shows the results and reproduce a live-art performance in Berlin where Kowa will be locked in silence in a totally dark cell for seven weeks, streamed online with an infrared camera and projected into the exhibited panopticon. While the artist sits alone in a completely dark cell in Berlin for seven weeks, she is permanently filmed with an infrared camera and streamed to the internet. Scientific drawings that explain the effects of the darkness-retreat on Thalamus, Hypothalamus Pituitary Gland and Pineal Gland in the human brain has been realized.Explanatory drawings of the brain's biological changes in a darkness- retreat, explain an inner process, that no control-center could ever detect.
