On the Edge

Shot during an art residency at Iaspis in 2007, On the Edge has the city of Stockholm as its background. The piece highlights the quotidian experiences of pedestrians as they negotiate the shared space of the street. The video depicts a walking through spaces that are normally not meant to be occupied: gaps between parked cars and the curb, the outer space of fenced sidewalks, extremely narrow passageways, etc. As the scenes accumulate, so does the perception that a slight deviation is being proposed in the otherwise uncontested normalcy of everyday experience.
