THE HANGMAN AT HOME
Michelle KRANOT / Uri KRANOT［Denmark］
This immersive VR work is inspired by Carl SANDBURG’s poem that begins with a verse, “What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?” By crossing thresholds, such as a door, a window, or a fireplace, viewers are invited to peek into five stories capturing pivotal moments in five characters’ lives. Upon witnessing their lives, will we take action or not? The work questions the meaning of witnessing and the responsibility that comes with it.
