Observation in philosophical terms is the process of filtering sensory information through the thinking process. Input is received via hearing, sight, smell, taste, or touch and then analysed through either rational or irrational thinking. What happens if the observed object knows that he/she is being observed and the observer exchanges the positions so that the observer is now observed by the
object of observation?
In “In Between”, artists are playing with these roles and with the purpose of observation. In this context, observation can have a more open and indistinct objective and use different methods than in science. The observation process is a tool for working with different communities, local artists, and cultural organizations in creating a wider context for the relationship between citizens and neighbourhoods. It serves to create situations that will increase communication in the communities and between them. The aim of “In Between” is to transform the public [audience?] into a collaborator and public space into a potential creative site by listening and sharing personal and communal stories, exploring everyday life, and re-creating social memory.
