Don't: is a live film.
The image of a clown appears projected on the screen. It will mirror the movements of anyone standing in front of the screen, while whispering voices read out instructions from a 19th century etiquette manual.
The screen works as a deforming mirror, where the viewer finds his/her performance 'manipulated' into an unusual appearance and transported to a different space.
Don't: challenges the conventional predetermination of film and the passive role of the film viewer by presenting a 'live movie', where the gallery visitor is the main and only character of the work: a clown.
