I can // You can. You can (single—channel video, 2012) A men/women is focussing her/his iron view into the camera and suddenly starting to talk. Out of him/her grows a canny and calm monologue which manifests her/his world of thoughts and ideas. The at first independently created monologue starts to get tangled up into contradictions, torn between different views and ideologies. It is a result of phrases taken out from different commercials which were combined into a continuously ongoing monologue. The monologue turns out to be commanded and alienated by advertisement.
