almost a year since we took the photos, but look closer, the cracks and
surfaces will reveal themselves in a form where time is lost.

It felt like
attaching spam to some second hand pieces of street junk. We installed the
works onto boards that people place in front of car wheels to protect them from
dog piss. Our hands got dirty. The works surfaced and sometimes disappeared at
the same rapid speed.
Sometimes the
cars drove off and the works were left behind with the boards, protecting
nothing. Someone partially ripped off another work, as if in protest. Bits laid
nearby on the road. Dogs still pissed on their favorite spots, and soon the
surviving works became so trashed that no one bothered to remove them. The
surrounding noise quickly soaked into the exhibition, and at this stage, the
works were no longer works but collapsing leftovers of models for the models to
be rendered on your screen.
Piss. Protection. Boards. is the final form of the Dog. Piss. Protection.
