Installation in public space. Disintegrating walls. Pentagon (4.5 x 5 x 3) meter.
The current increase in population and information flows is matched by confinements, prohibitions, surveillance and loss of civil liberties. We witness a proliferation of walls, borders and fences. There are various forms of psychological warfare going on in public space: security systems and checkpoints, virtual frontiers and specialized zones are introduced. I explore and confront the ways in which we resist the attempts to regulate individuals and confront the methodology of controlling the populace through suspicion and fear. I want to engage the public in thinking about how to turn the current climate of fear and suspicion into an active and discursive public space.
