No World, single channel video, 18′, sound, 16:9, 2014

Six youths reside in an empty house. Their everyday life is gaming, the repetition of violent behaviors without actual conflicts and rehearsing forms of march and protest. Their actions evolve out of our everyday life of mediated images and uncertainties. These forms of self-training become a natural instinct and a form of existence.

The work is centered on the idea of speaking about love as a form of action. Three female protagonists, as very distinctive individuals compared to each other, talk to the camera about specific events and experiences when they encounter love. Situated in a remote desert this savage environment becomes a new habitat for them to pursue a new form of living.
