Roadside Temples and Dhammapada Verses
2014

Hit the deck, Robin. I'll get us out of this. b/w But it was scary for a while, wasn't it?

A large wall construction on wheels is connected to the center of a fixed wall of the building with hinges. The other end of the wall construction is driven by an electric motor. The wall construction moves very slowly from one side of the room to the other, until it reaches the fixed walls of the building and bounces back in the other direction. Visitors of the exhibition are either trapped on one or the other side of the wall construction. One side of the wall construction is covered with real growing grass, the other side is covered with spike strips.


Wood, spike strips, grass, rockwool, electric motor, wheels, 300cm x 734cm x 60cm.
