"In the films, the setting appears as much as a mediator as it does a meeting place—uniting the characters, distinguishing them, serving as a gate, barrier, and mirror. The characters interact not only within this space, but with it: investigating the boundaries of their own bodies and testing the autonomy they each possess over the urban landscape. The installation plays with this idea of overlap and reflections, intersecting with the pre-existing architecture to deviate and manipulate the path of the spectator, while the use of sound serves as both a structural element and a vessel for connection— linking the characters, films, and the experience for the viewers " Jesper Just.
