Eric and Eric consists of a life-size sculpture of a figure in bed and a projected video image of the same composition. The combination creates a hologram-like effect that seems desperate to imitate reality.

video projection on sculpture

In this interdisciplinary art project, video and sculpture come together to tell the story of the distance between two lovers. Video image wraps around sculptural form to create an illusion that blurs the distinction between them.

As in human relationships, it is not always the case that things fit together as well as they could. While the communication between the two media only emphasizes their imperfect relationship, the lack of communication between the two lovers stresses feelings of isolation and loneliness, rather than a loving connection, despite that they share an intimate space.
