In Dramaturg - First Viewer the relation between artwork and spectator is being questioned. A very slow camera movement pivots around the so-called 'first viewers' of the artwork. As the figures in the video draw the attention of the viewer, slowly the surrounding space is described. When half way through the slow movement the protagonists' gaze is focused on the spectator, he will have noticed that he is standing in the exact same spot as the people in the video. In this way the relations between artwork and viewer are subtly exchanged.
