Culture of Fear

April 2017

An interactive performance explaining and confronting the participate with how fear is being used to obtain political power. By using a „fear“ sensor, the totem will react and hide the light when afraid and you will be in the dark. But maybe you are not alone in the darkness. The performance lets the visitor experience how easily they can be manipulated by polititians.
Visually the design is meant to be minimalistic to not distract from the moment the light disappears in the black quartz sand and the turning brass rods are creating moving shadows during the performance.
