obsobs

- an authoritarian intervention in public space.

Video: Kaja Mærk Egeberg

Obsobs is a sculptural hybrid between performance and installation with emphasis on interaction. The piece interrupts our ”normal” patterns of movement and behavior in public space by closing off, guiding and obscuring our conventions of signs. Obsobs questions our -sometimes- blind acceptance of authorities and abuses the ability to (re-)direct people with red and white stripes.
