The black rooms are in fact Mises-en-scène that the artist stages out of completely empty spaces: miniature versions of generic spaces. Often in monochrome, the smooth surfaces of these tiny models further strips away the messy details of these places and focuses on the moments of transition as a grey zone of experience in which uncertainty prevails. Five pieces are regrouped, including 'Screening Room', 'In the Shine of the Cosmic Microwave Background', 'I Look around the Internet', 'Keep It All Inside' and 'Black Mirror'.
