Irit Batsry Caution/Danger, 2010

Caution/Danger Street Life, site-related installation
Bendana-Pinel Art Contemporain, Paris, Sept 9 - Oct 23, 2010

Security tapes printed with legends 'Caution' and 'Danger' (5,000 meters approx.),
12,000 stapples, video camera, two video projectors.

The entangled yellow and red industrial security tape printed with the words “Caution” and “Danger” were installed at the bay windows, subverting their usual function. These “membrane-like” structures change appearance according to the position of the viewer and the natural light. They partially obstruct the view into the gallery, where video projections are set to show passers-by’s movements captured through the security tape “curtain” by a “live” camera transforming the space into a monitoring device.
