Materials: Wooden podium, camera obscura technique, Directional speaker
The commuting audience in central station The Hague was invited to step onto a large wooden podium and discover something magical in an ordinary item: a matchbox.
By peeking into the box the spectators becomes a voyeur as they witness the intimate space of a miniature elderly couple, sleeping inside.Overall there is something discreet and forlorn about this encounter, it is a little memorial to things failed to be noticed; objects tossed away and forgotten moments of compassion that have fallen into oblivion.
