The Mirror Wall, 2009, an interactive installation by Danish artist Jeppe Hein. The following description is provided by the artist: When visitors enter the space the mirror starts moving subtly and wavelike. Visitors facing the mirror will be irritated by the vibrating reflection of themselves and their surrounding. This sensation causes not only a vague feeling of dizziness but also a latent distrust of one’s own eyes and spatial perception.

In the beginning was the Word… and maybe it had something to do with a cinema lying in the desert of Sinai.
Built at the beginnings of this millennium, this cinema was conceived by a Frenchman after wondering around in the desert and enjoying magic local smokes. Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and the originality of the idea, the Frenchman went to Cairo and bought the original old seats and projection equipment from an old cinema. Everything was installed and was ready to go but the premiere was sabotaged since the locals did not share the enthusiasm of the foreigner. This was the beginning of the end of the world cinema…
… which then became the photography project of Kaupo Kikkas. For more info on the end of the world cinema see here. And take our friend Hercules as a guide.
Well, money is what it is: Material. So better spend it as such…
