Installation view, Neue Galerie Graz, 2004

An 8mm or 16mm projector projects light onto a wall on which the word “possible“ appears. The projector is set up in such a way as to ensure that the viewer should or must pass between the wall and the projector itself. This sets to the following scenario: At first glance it appears as if the word “possible“ (in red or black) is being beamed onto the wall. Yet as he passes through, the viewer realises that the word must be written directly onto the wall because the word remains visible on the wall despite the viewer’s body interrupting the projector’s beam or casting a shadow. What appears to be projection, an image, is in reality an object. Consequently, that which is real appears to be a (projected) illusion, the illusion becomes real – everything seems possible. This modality of being, this permanent latency of the category “possibility” finds expression in the selected word. The largest space is the realm of possibility.

Filmski projektor od 8 ili 16 mm projektuje svetlost na zid na kojem se pojavljuje reč “possible” (moguće). Projektor je postavljen tako da gledaoci treba da/moraju da prolaze između zida i projektora. Pri tom se dešava sledeće: pri pukom posmatranju stiče se utisak da je reč “possible” (crvene ili crne boje) projektovana na zid. Posmatrač, međutim, prilikom prolaska primećuje da je reč morala biti direktno napisana na zidu, jer se, i kada se ne projektuje svetlost, i kada nema posmatračeve senke, reč i dalje nalazi na zidu. Ono što je delovalo kao projektovani znak, ilustracija, u stvarnosti je objekat. Realno se doimalo kao (projektovana) iluzija, iluzija je postala realna - kao da je sve moguće. Ta uslovnost postojanja koja je otvorena, to što je kategorija mogućnosti u svetu latentno prisutna, dolazi do izražaja u samoj odabranoj reči. Najveći prostor je prostor mogućnosti.
