With The Mind II Sæbjörnsson and Moraes explore the phenomenon of the conscience or the mind. The mind does not possess a fixed form, it cannot be localized. Yet as a notion, it can be anything – a breeze, a word in space, a conversation. On stage it appears as the video projection of a face with two eyes and a mouth. A person enters into a dialog with this phenomenon, revolving around the person’s relationship to himself and society in general.
