Tuesday Afternoon (2002)

In the process of globalization,international borders become increasingly easy to cross for capital. Corporations reach super-mobility, but borders are militarized against "undesirable" populations. Birth becomes one's first immigration, and seemingly arbitrary lines determine social and economic geography. Tuesday Afternoon, made to be experienced online, is an easily accessible hypermedia project that contrasts issues of individually experienced border crossings. Landscape is experienced as site of discrimination and even death. Using sound, text and video, the game-like structure of Tuesday Afternoon makes each visitor's interaction with the piece unique.
