Loch is a multipart spatial installation including a livecam. Visitors are recorded accessing a small ramp running between a cave construction and a landscape print on the wall. At the end of the ramp a small screen is attached to the wall where visitors can look at themselves, as seen from inside the cave. A video camera mounted in the back of the cave is continually recording live images, compositing visitors into the landscape.
At the end of the exhibition the tour leads into the cave, where the visitor becomes the observer, watching other visitors from the camera position.
