Go To Gate

Go to Gate was a huge interactive installation. We had essentially built in all the basic functions of an airport – ticket counter, luggage checkin, checkin, security – and an entire transit lounge – in the old freemason-building in the centre of Copenhagen that was the home of our music theatre PLEX at the time.

The idea was to create a live enactment of the growing measures of security and control, that were being implemented in the wake of 9/11.  We wanted the audience, who had bought tickets for different destinations, and had to buy visas and insurances accordingly, to experience how all this control more than anything added to the general feeling of anxiety that was spreading at that time.

Here is a blog that we made about the anxiety industrial complex as we called it  : Go To Gate
