In ’Off’ the persons are only visible through a digital representation, while the surroundings are as analog as possible. These pixelated persons are isolated from the rest of the world and often find themselves in foggy, strange milieus.
These pictures come to life when the viewer move in relation to them – seen up close, the people are blurred and the viewer has to step back to bring the motive into focus. At the same time, the scene in which the person is placed is blurred when viewed from a distance. From a distance you can almost only identify the pixelated part of the image. So you have to move back and forth. The movement is important — metaphorically, too." (Johan Rosenmunthe)
