Visual Survey Project
Materials: barricades, guides, signs
Location: Sigmund-Haffner Gasse, Salzburg, Austria
2004 International Summer Academy of Fine Art, Slazburg, Austria
I want to critique the pervasive tourist industry that turns the city of Salzburg into an indistinctive cultural place. I want to make manifest the density of the tourists who fill every street corner in Salzburg.
Lay out one barricade, 12 meters long, creating two distinct passages in the street. There will be two direction signs that indicate "Tourist" and "Einheimische"(Citizen) on both ends of the pathways. Two guards will assist to categorize and guide people in their respective passages.
