installation / 2008
2011 / Gallery of Design and Architecture / Tallinn, Estonia

Media bubble doesn't blow up without a consumer, the installation doesn't work without the visitor. To make the media field buzzing, to create scandals and little stars, one has to move oneself. You have to type in c**.com or order newyorktimes, you have to pick up the remote control or tune in to FM wavelength. In this installation you have to make contact to the wooden plate, to make the information steams flow over you. It doesn't matter, what kind of information that is, it just has to be warm. Media bubble is around You, without You it's non-existent.

  • Caution! Could make you dizzy.
