We built this city (don't you remember?)
Mdf, mirror, two-way mirror, ratchet straps, mylar, amplifier, speakers, audio cables
and looped video (SD, 4:3 with sound).
A number of blank mdf modules resembling speakers or bass-bins are arranged to create a central space, hexagonal in plan. On entering through one of the three gaps which allow access to this space, the viewer is confronted with mirrored surfaces, which create a crystalline mise-en-abyme. Periodically, the reflection on one of the mirrors is disrupted by a back-projection - details of musicians' hands coming into contact with their instruments.
