Half full is a two-channel video work. In one channel, white vases are filling up with black liquid and overflowing. In another, black vases are filling up with white liquid and overflowing. The channels are projected on opposite sides of a wall (or other projection surface) so that the viewer can see only one video at a time.

The work is inspired by a common saying. As a glass can be half empty or half full, the vases are also black or white depending on the viewer. It is impossible to put a pin on the truth in a constantly moving and changing world. Truth is a subjective structure that someone else can interpret the opposite way.
