Euros per Minutes, 2007

Photo Installation

‘Euros per Minute’ is installed in the fashion of a french real estate agency. Photos of how we inhabit space with film, books, theatre,music, public transport, elevators, phone booths and parks are on display similar to window advertisements of apartment sales. ┬áThe stereotypical ad exhibits superfluous photos of non-spaces that offer little information beyond the price per meter square.

In ‘Euros per Minute’ one is reminded of our live space beyond private walls. Its an ironic twist on how capitalism places a currency value on space, events, time, privacy and history. The impossible space, invisible space, public space, time and nature become a commodity.
