THE ROOM PROJECT by JOAS NEBE
Rooms are essential sources for the home-coming feeling everybody developes during life. Our private rooms are filled up with psychological projections, unfilled wishes, hopes and dreams. But there are psychological rooms, too, filled with emotions, expectations, all kind of mental energy, may it be positive or negative.
The Room Project is built up of several video works, mostly one channel. Each work is regarding a profession, a special kind of room (e.g. a stage, a show case, a castles room etc.), intermingled with linguistic meaning of the profession, the room and language itself.
Important aspects of this project is the shifting of perception focus within every single video work of the body of works from the project. Some video works will be named after existing rooms, e.g. in private homes, castles etc.. Other video works will have the title and play with the idea and the connotation of a word, e.g. glass case, Mountain range, and bring together the linguistic meaning which is important for communication with some associations rooted in the mental and psychological status of a person.
The outcome will be a "big house" consisting of at least 10-20 rooms, each room dedicated to special emotions, professions, or linguistic meanings.
