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.

CAN, Centre d’art Neuchâtel, À la recherche de la bohème perdue, May 25th to July 7th 2013

"The Gate" in action


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