Definition of Fear:
“Fear, meaning to humans the feeling of direct or abstract threats or danger aimed against the individual or the individual’s world. Fear is not necessarily either true or justified even though the individual perceives the sense in itself as true. When we try to further analyze the emotion fear from a wider perspective, we can see that it can restrict an individual’s behavior. In some cases the reaction will be total apathy, in others an irrational action that differs between each individual. In some cases fear turns to destructivity, when negative light paths affect the individual to the extent that she believes, and perceive that everything is working against her. By humans this is referred to as paranoia.” (excerpt from the script)

In the double channel video O.G.B.I.P. [ Our Global Behavior Is Psychopathic II ], Hallberg and Rainsford stage a scene of fear, torture, bonding, suspicion, trust, love, and other intensities. Four characters meet on a sailing boat in a serene and beautiful landscape. But the waters are deep, and so are the minds of the protagonists. Who will survive this experiment?

Virlani Hallberg, born in 1981 Jakarta, Indonesia, works and lives in Stockholm and Berlin. Jennifer Rainsford, born in 1982 Stockholm, lives and works in Stockholm and Paris.
