The Day Is Obvious by Its Morning

The title of this video installation, which was made in Sofia, seizes upon a Bulgarian adage. It juxtaposes images of two different residential areas within the Bulgarian capital—a high-rise complex and an affluent suburb—taken during dawn and sunrise. Step by step the differing realities of both settings emerge: visible, on the one hand, are precarious conditions, informal urban structures, and involuntary social encounters and, on the other, seemingly purposeful spatial and social seclusion.
