This installation was situated in the basement of the project space. Each surface of the room was covered with blue stretch fabric which faded away all corners, the only light was coming from the ceiling behind the blue fabric. The moment you would step into this installation your eyes were blinded by darkness, just after some moments you could walk and explore the space. Another result was the disorientation, not knowing where you are in relation to the rest of the project space. Painting the floor upstairs the same color blue, all three installation got visually connected.

Combining a talk about 'Borges and I' with music that came up.

Talking Heads 'Seen and not seen'

He would see faces in movies, on T.V., in magazines, and in books....
He thought that some of these faces might be right for him....And
through the years, by keeping an ideal facial structure fixed in his
mind....Or somewhere in the back of his mind....That he might, by
force of will, cause his face to approach those of his ideal....The
change would be very subtle....It might take ten years or so....
Gradually his face would change its' shape....A more hooked nose...
Wider, thinner lips....Beady eyes....A larger forehead.

He imagined that this was an ability he shared with most other
people....They had also molded their faced according to some
ideal....Maybe they imagined that their new face would better
suit their personality....Or maybe they imagined that their
personality would be forced to change to fit the new appear-
ance....This is why first impressions are often correct...
Although some people might have made mistakes....They may have
arrived at an appearance that bears no relationship to them....
They may have picked an ideal appearance based on some childish
whim, or momentary impulse....Some may have gotten half-way
there, and then changed their minds.

He wonders if he too might have made a similar mistake.
