The starting point of the installation Tageslichtlizenz (Daylight-license) is the dystopian novel “Kallocain” by Karin Boye (written in 1940). The installation is based on a text compiled from sentences and phrases in the novel. The newly formed text-constellation creates a dialogue of sentences that move audibly through the space. An installation of windows with projections lead the viewer through the space, as they visually close the duality between image and text thereby forging the two into a united expression. By restructuring sentences from the novel, a new story can emerge which is fuelled by the imagination of the viewer
