The Gate

"The Gate" at CAN

It doesn’t matter whether you are standing in India, Egypt, the US of A or somewhere in Europe, the metal detector has become a universal symbol of security in the urban landscape. The metal detector gate has become common language, a point of performance, where individuals of all kind pass through and become civilized citizens. Regardless whether the gate is plugged or not, not working at all, equipped with the latest crop of technology or the gate beeps furiously but nobody reacts, the act of performance stays the same.

My version of the gate is very democratic as it beeps and shines its rainbow light for everyone.

"The Gate" in action

 

For a long time, I had an eye on metal detectors. Though the beauties below sparked my imagination.

Moonomat

Nicole Zaugg, student at the Style & Design department of Zurich University of the Arts, ZHdK, wanted a “Moonomat.” In other words, a photo booth in which one can take snapshots of one’s behind. With a bit of code, a button and a printer a Moonomat came into being. – For those who are still confused, mooning means “to shine ones behind in public.”
