Television images of politicians being interviewed show us different worlds of perception. While the politician speaks to reporters, the bodyguard concentrates on potential dangers in the surrounding area. The viewer becomes witness to two parallel worlds, yet is inclined to pay more attention to the politician, who speaks outwardly to matters of public interest. The bodyguard brings to the situation a dramatically greater intensity, but one that is directed inward. He is deep in concentration, communicating through a small earpiece with a network that remains hidden from the viewer. The images are characterized by this contrast, which endows them with a particular tension. The video shifts the focus onto the bodyguard’s inner perception.
