Fin de siècle - End Of A Century,

Malachi Farrell,

Project 08 Dec 1996-12 Jan 1997

A street of cardboard walls. Fragments of speeches, distorted and slowed down, street sounds and gunshots on tape. As gun barrels and pistols appear and disappear on one side, so simultaneously real flowers appear and disappear on the other. The viewer who walks down the street seems to be in the perfect, computer-programmed illusion. The installation has been set up as if it were scenery, so that behind the cardboard walls you can see how the illusion was achieved.
