The video space "Night flight" by the director and video artist Jasna Hribernik is a sequence of spatial video and sound installations that in themselves do not start or end anywhere. Through the manner of presentation they function as an idea of dematerialised spatial elements, a disturbance in the perception of the abject and objectivity that succumbs to subjective relations every time anew. The dematerialised "flying" video images engulf the viewer into a space that is no longer a space of visuality, no longer a space of reality, but a space of the viewer's comprehension and consequentially structural changes in the thought process. The installation Vertigo insinuates that we are limited by gravity and indicates the possibility of beating it, Mirage touches upon the cultural or learned boarders of perception, while the installation Lifestream 2 directs us into the search for meditative voids within the saturation in urban life. As regards the object of research the installations are completed works, however with their interaction and their spatial placement Jasna Hribernik simultaneously directs the attention onto the phenomenon of the absent view (an unfocused glance) that cuts through the surface of the bodily image and is oriented into infinity. It indicates that the human experience includes an ever-changing experience of space and time, out of which spatial depictions and artefacts can be built.
