"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.
