Hamilton Artists Inc-Have I been Here Before-Lenka Novak
(Interactive video Exhibition, performance by Karjin DeJong)
Lenka Novak’s interactive video installation invites the viewer/participant to contemplate the nature of his/her own being through the act of self-reflection within the space. The play of shadows, light, reflected, and refracted image and the repetition of the infinite leads to a contemplative state of mind and projection of one’s own self within the personal as well as larger concept of time and space.
