In the dead of winter in Berlin, Simon Lee and Eve Sussman shot Seitenflügel, a single screen video that tracks the daily life of their neighbors as day turns to night. Channelling their previous works Balcony and Wintergarden, with an obvious nod to Hitchcock's Rear Window, Seitenflügel takes the voyeurism ever present in urban life and delivers an unreal view of the lives across the courtyard and volleys it back forever changed by the act of the observer.
