…preformed attitudes affected by my own emo, represent my internal state?
Where will my preconceptions lead me? Stereotyping? How often have you been trapped in a false consensus, assuming that other people agree exactly with your own values and beliefs? Do you see, do you hear the same as I do? Do I see, do I hear the same as you do? I project, we project. Do I interact or do I react? I am not consistent in what I do, but how often have I assumed consistency in other peoples behaviour? false. conclusions. made. How often have I been trapped in errors of communication? I repeat. I repeat.I repeat. I repeat. Is it all resulting in a fundamental attribution error?
The installation consists of a tape player constantly playing a loop of the song „errors in perception“ while in another part of the room two mounted speakers perform an on-going dialogue with each other. The dialogue consists of a monotonous ‘hello’, spoken by ‘Alex’, one of the standard text to speech translator voices. Both in the same space, the tape player and the speaker installation form a never-ending (non-) dialogue, resulting in a lulling atmosphere where we find ourselves between pleasant boredom and timeless perception.
