The Hudson

Maria Marshall (CH/UK)

POSTCITY, Bunker / Basememt, Ars Electronica Gallery Spaces, Säulenhalle

Men in suits and ties carrying briefcases appear on the Hudson River and walk onto the beach and beyond the frame. Their clothes are wet. The same men appear with dry clothes and walk out of frame. The soundtrack is of a Trump speech about putting up the wall, sped-up to sound like Mickey Mouse.

The soundtrack

Three of the same soundtracks are played at different intervals so that there will be a cacophony of sound, but audible wherever the viewer stands.
