Psychasthenia 2+2 is a highly stroboscopic video-projection of fetishistic, high-capitalist architecture. Utilising tropes inherent in youth culture and electronic dance music, the borders between self and environment are examined through beats and delays in the video-image. What results is the sensation of dissolving into the environment.

One finds oneself, at times, "in" the image, and in perspective distanced from it and at other times totally absorbed by it. The viewer finds his/her-self somewhere between building, environment, narrative and subject, capitalism and schizophrenia.
