Avance/Retour/Rapides

avance/retour/rapides
An audiovisual piece allows the user to explore an indefinite passage in Budapest between Dób and Kiraly streets. The passage starts somewhere on a grid and ends somewhere else. As the grid fills itself, the user discovers the multiple entries and ends of the same passage. The user is trapped somehow while a strange sound loops to underline the feeling of constantly going back and forth between two streets. This piece Avance/Retour/Rapides is often shown with its symmetrical abstract twin, Miss tek.
