Basacchi and Tejani have been collaborating with each other for over two years.
Conjunction Junction creates individually specific and emotionally charged experiences that bring to question the relationships to and perception of our surroundings. The washroom as a private yet public space becomes an important place where moments of self-reflection and transitional awareness occur. A visual loop of alternating (illusive, plausible/implausible) landscapes superimposed onto reflective surfaces invites participants to explore these private moments and confront the precarious gradient between reality and illusion. Conjunction Junction considers the dynamics of perception and its implications on connection, ownership, and action within ourselves and public space.
