|An Imaginary Museum of Revolutions|
with Tjebbe Van Tijen
|An Imaginary Museum of Revolutions was a proposed multimedia installation to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution. The basic concept was to address 200 revolutions from the French Revolution up to the present-day. The major components were firstly a sculpture garden of replicas of revolutionary monuments, all reduced to one size, that when touched would play their respective revolutionary songs. Then secondly a group of coin-operated dispensing machines where one could buy small replicas of these 200 revolutionary monuments. And thirdly a set of multimedia terminals which when activated by the purchased revolutionary monument would allow the user to explore an audiovisual database concerning these 200 revolutions via three interconnected paths of navigation - space, time and ideology.Credits:|
