videotunnel is an installation practice that I have used several times:
a very small monitor is located at the end of a shaft or corridor that is closed off by a signal band and inaccessible to the visitor. the video cannot be seen exactly with the naked eye.
the visitor has the possibility to see the film more closely from the barrier with a field glasses provided and to hear the corresponding sound via headphones.
this form of presentation arouses some curiosity and requires initiative and concentration on the video. [ulrich phips fischer]
