Milk (Maito, 2000)

An installation (2000) of two 14” analogue TV-monitors placed next to each other in a dark room. Two synchronized video channels. Loop duration: 3 min. Silent.

The woman on the right drinks a glassful of milk. The woman on the left spits the same amount into her own glass. The consumed substance is transported through the monitors’ physical boundaries. They turn their gaze towards the viewer. One of them blinks her eyes. The other one licks her lips. They appear almost identical; like two sides of the same persona. They turn their faces to profile. The direction of the movement reverses – the liquid is transported from the left TV-monitor to the right one. The loop is seamless.
