About The Work

Alice Könitz experiments with social architecture as a way to playfully imagine an interactive environment that promotes utility and engagement. Her social sculptures often appear as props in accompanying videos, as is the case for this unique work which plays a central role in Premonition, her film about a group of people traveling on a raft to meet up with another group of people further downstream. The artist explains, “The films create situations in which the sculptures have very specific functions. For Premonition I needed a device that would allow one to have a view up and down the Los Angeles River without having to turn one’s head. In the film you see two people ‘operating’ the mirrored sculpture. It turns out that they don’t only see up and down the stream, but they can also foresee what happens toward the end of the film.”
