Unattended Body

Arzu Ozkal Telhan – Unattended Body (2005, 56MB, 5:00)

Arzu Ozkal Telhan’s Unattended Body is a
spectacular meditation on public space,
observational video at perhaps its finest.

The artists also says:
“Unattended body mainly discusses how an
existence at it’s most banal (Heidegger) can
be simply perceived as a disturbance or a
potential threat if it does not act in its expected
way for the society.”

Normally three long segments, they’ve
been edited together here as a five minute
clip, all shown at once, which I actually prefer.
What is so painfully boring to others is ever
so exciting for the rest of us.
