Stand on my shoes... See Thing As I See Them... is a windows’ site-specific installation intended as a “simulacrum” of the outside view. The B&W images printed on transparencies that overlay the glass surface of the windows are images that juxtapose the very same external “reality” outside the windows. By covering the windows with the very same image as the outside, a simulacrum is built although not a concealing one of two realities – one printed in 2D and another in 3D outside – together they form a perspective (several relative perspectives in fact) only able to be “matched” or perfectly overlapped, when the observer finds the point of perfectly juxtaposed shapes which depends on where he is standing. By correlating with two “realities” the viewer searches for an harmonisation of angles that complement each other in the same way as original and copy do.
