Be scared or be square

Neon sign, video 4:50min, four photographs, each 47x70cm, 2012

 

Be scared or be square is a piece in which I transformed an abandoned place in Beverly hills for about a half-hour.

I turned a hand written sentence on a paper A5 , which I found in a cabin part of the abandoned building, into a white neon sign.

The building was used before as a parking lot. Afterward I installed the neon sign on the cabin, switched it on using a car battery and walked around the cabin in a squere for about half-hour. The police had arrived just after the action had finished and I was taking the neon sign into the car.
