Supermen II

Cultural Olympiad 2010

The tick, tock, of the metronome, the muffled echoing recitation of the rules of bespoke tailoring and the music of J.S. Bach turned the Grand Shaft into the most amazing venue, triggering all sorts of ideas for sound pieces.

Men in power, men in suits distinguished only by the details of the tailoring, men cut off from those around them, their heads filled with music or with other thoughts? The viewer cannot help but see a connection between the suits in power and the site’s military past.
