Interactive multimedia installation, 2000
Images from a news report on illegal immigrants appear on screens. Men, women, and children on a boat appear to be fleeing to the nearest coastline. They are tracked down by the police, which leads one to believe that these images were filmed shortly before their arrest. Every arrival of visitor into the range of the detector (a sensor on the ground) triggers the intrusion of strong beams of light within the image. The images of the illegal immigrants were captured in the moment of their imminent arrest, with the screens staging three types of “rapid fire light.”A sound track completes the images.
