"How is in Vienna?" is literal-video project, consisted by five recordings of full metro road in Vienna. Each line is separated video, recorded in one sequence from the first to the end stop. Recorded moving images were a base for stream of consciousness writing, to video linked as a subtitle. This emblematic (text + image) result, in which author publishing his cognitive processes in the full voluminosity of everyday banalities, stands as a vague excerpt from one ongoing critical monologue. There is no certain thematic or style which dominated in those monologues. This method questions the processes, strategies and formats of mental mapping of a certain space and time in full heterogeneity of their contexts, with emphasized critical position. In this case, the subject is a young Bosnian artist who comes to Vienna for the first time to live and work there. He chooses to position his thoughts somewhere in between his bedroom (text) and the Vienna's U-bahn (video).

The work is part of project entitled “Critical intimacy”, which experiments with personal/social readings, confronting a contemplation (monologue) to specified living circumstances caught by video or photography. Read about "Critical intimacy" in the Journal.
