Got distracted when I posted this video and forgot to say what it is! (blame a very snotty head cold). This video was taken at the NSW Art Gallery of an installation by Evelina Deicmane as part of the Sydney Biennale. The idea is that you stand inside the black boxes and look out through rectangular holes and view the works on the walls. From outside the boxes, the wall pieces appear to be black panels. From inside the box you can see images of people sitting in domestic spaces. It's an interesting work, but I have to admit I found the people interacting with the black boxes and the way they moved around the room just as interesting and nicely absurd.
