Oasis (1997) in collaboration with Wendy Higgenbottamwater fountain, light boxes, audio installation
Meant for waiting rooms, offices, reception halls. Two wall-mounted light boxes on both sides of the water fountain. No trash can. We press the tap for water to fill our paper cup. The boxes light up, gossip, faces, laughter, conversation.The cup is full, we release the tap and it is silent again. Eves-dropping makes thirsty, one more cup, a stomach full of water. Eves-dropping hurts. We are in fraganti, the forbidden is human, as long as we are alone.
