recently added to Rhizome Art Base: 
short work description: 
Inability of Being Nude
The work does not consist only of the streaming moving picture itself, but also the environment it is embedded in.
An initial interaction confronts the viewer with different levels of 
movements of baring/exposing.
He becomes very quickly aware, that he did not enter a peep-show, but is 
disturbing intimacy, the process of emptiness. Emptiness in the sense of 
The nude is a metaphore. The Inability of Being Nude becomes the inability 
of exposing one's entire internal to other people, including those who are 
most intimate and this could be the viewer himself. This inability is in 
the same way protecting as separating.
