Zipper Zone

zippers, photographs, 2 walls of 3 x 3 m

2009

Zipper Zone is an interactive artwork made out of zippers. The audience entering the space can decide which part to open and which part to close. Behind the zippers there are many things to discover: human beings and photographs. We will be ‘master of our domain' in the sense that we are forced to decide which information we want to take and which to exclude. This zipper zone is like a reflection of urban life, overloaded with images, messages from mass media and advertisements. We have to give attention to many things, yet at the same time we have to skip, select and delete in order to survive, to stay sane. 'Zipper Zone, master of your domain' is likened to Facebook, a site where you can find nonsense and surprises.
