stay in line.

Cross it! Overcoming as well as transgressing. To consider the polarity in the social context. Stay within the borders and leave them again. Present the word as experience. Making the term visible. Interaction with a person.
The idea of my prototypical concept was to overcome an invisible border. The viewer puts himself in position, symbolic of a given obstacle. A sentence is revealed to him in accordance with the situation: Stay in line. Crossing the line changes the state of the installation. The light turns on and casts a shadow on the floor from which one reads: Push the limits. For each stage in which the participant finds himself, he is given a meaning that correlates directly with his behaviour.
The project was created for the entrance examination at the Zurich University of the Arts. A separate task on the subject of "transcending". At that time one of my first large installations in space. The object had a square floor plan from 1.5 to 1.5 meters and a height of 2 meters.

Material: wood, wire, cardboard, naylon, beamer, InDesign, hot glue
