Bulletproof

Title: Bullet Proof (2007)

Medium: 4min15s DVD projected onto a modified casper bullet proof door

 

At first glance it is quite clear that the bullet proof window adds extra emotion. It gives the impression that the message on the DVD does not only demonstrate a collage of 'propaganda' orientated phenomenon, concerning the annihilation of common farmers, but expose real life events. Once flawless and unbreakable, the defeated bullet proof window now confronts the onlooker. This installation gives us a multidimensional feeling adding to the feeling of being put into the shoes of one who survived a farm attack.
