Abstract

Well, Hello! is a site-specific installation that considers the relationship between a tourist/spectator/viewer and host/place/artwork. Humans have a need to be recognised by others, this is how our subjectivity is formed. In more religious times, it was God who was a witness to our soul. Nowadays it is the internet. People upload numerous selfies, with the desire to be seen, recognised, liked. But if everyone is busy uploading images of themselves who is around to do the witnessing?
