Text on Windows

The night is dark. Only a few windows illuminate the blackness of the night. What stories, what people are hidden behind the glass? We can watch but only guess and never know. A short subtitle and the uncanny point of view of the camera imply some story. The coarse grain of the photographs evokes a more two-dimensional, almost painterly effect. The viewer can’t be sure if the houses are real or film props. Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window was a great inspiration for this project - playing with the human curiosity of what might be hidden behind the windows and their curtains.
