The interactive work proposes to virtually rebuild the lost physical space of the Mausoleum of Georgi Dimitrov
, that used to be the most remarkable public symbol during the Communistic period in Bulgaria, inside the visual and physical space of the entrance at 15 Nassau, New York.
Using Bluetooth technology, visitors are automatically invited to activate it and will receive a series of visual and audio fragments which recreate the space of the former Mausoleum
This newly common-used technology is highly open for communication and in this sense it can be likened to graffiti.
As graffiti in public space confronts passers-by with intentional messages, this work addresses notions of presentation space vs. private space and representations of time and space visually and virtually.
