// installation with mark niskanen


mark niskanen & jani-matti salo: no names

No Names is a performance-installation that creates an intimate platform for communication between two people. The installation consists of a light bulb attached to a microphone stand, a chair, and headphones. Unknowingly, by encountering the installation, a visitor becomes connected with a stranger. Their conversation remains private. Coincidently, the scene becomes a performance to those surrounding and observing the conversing participant.
