Bringing some brightness to the public space of Hermannstraße, synthesis and Sky Fine Foods present a collection of video works by Sandrine Deumier, Alex McLeod, Dagmar Schürrer and Diana Lynn VanderMeulen.
Conceived during the harsh months of lockdown and curfew in Berlin, Windows that whisper is our response to a public longing for art in every day’s environments. Bridging physical public spaces together with the intricacies of the digital worlds, Windows that whisper will shine out from the majestic windows at Neukölln’s finest Isla Coffee Berlin.
Giving shape and form to the amorphous space of the digital, the video works presented reflect on reversible identities and artificial behaviors, perception, and magical realisms, creating new paradigms of exchange between prose and object, self and its digital.
