Missing Link

2009

Mural, inflatable tunnel, animation, video, vinyl text.



The glass elevator that takes the viewers to the piece runs through the three floors of the museum. The elevator is flooded with blue light and a text on the glass reads: Aquarium.

 

When the viewer arrives they encounter an stripped space. In the center of the space there is a white inflatable tunnel. The interior of the tunnel is a colored spiral. Inside the tunnel the viewers can jump, run, walk, etc from the entrance point to the exit. The stripes of the mural match the colors of the stripes of the tunnel.

 

A flat screen monitor features an animation where the evolution of all species is taking place.

 

At the other side of the space another video piece addresses the relationship between animals and viewers at a museum.
