MIRROR VAN / LAUSITZ 310K + SURVEILLANCE ON DEMAND

TANZNACHT 2008 / 4 – 7th DEC
TEMPORARY HOTEL PROJECT
A caravan covered with mirrors. A large reflective surface of its surroundings. The van as a metaphor for surveillance. Mirroring its environment and exposing the looks and gazes whilst the interior becomes an unknown and hidden core where the observations are held and considered. The surrounding space an awkward interplay where one never escapes being visible and monitored. The interior like a cave – totally blackened out and sparsely appointed. A very practical and functional sleeping zone inside a highly active exterior. A place of rest where one can hide from this heightened exposure. Internally an on demand TV program screens a collection of surveillance films and live camera feeds of the area around the van.
LAUSITZ 310K – a bright jewel guarding deep secrets.
