Oasis or Mirage? (2018)

HD video, 05'04"  (produced during a Web Residency at Schloss Post: Akademie Solitude)

‘Oasis or Mirage?’ grew from an ongoing fascination with deserts and their representation in a western context.

Playing on a constant tension of the real and the fake, this scene is based on endless clichés and copies of oases.


It forms a kind of set, more than an actual site, that shows its fragility, its reality on the verge of collapse and appears as a mirage along the way. 

Never making us certain of its real presence, this video delves into the hyperreal nature of the oasis.
