Words of Wisdom
_ 4 ch. video-installation _ 2002 _ 1'04" loop _ 4ch. surround audio

The work deals with some aspects of the relationship between civilisation and nature. The inspiration for this work comes from the 'new korean toilet-culture' starting when Korea hosted the worldcup in 202, At that time the operators of public restrooms in subways or on highways tried to make these 'dark and dirty' places comfortable by decorating them with plastic-flowers / classical music and selected 'words of wisdom'. In this work I brought plastic-flowers to dark places like Apartment construction sites or junkyards, as well as bringing toilet-seats into nature.
