Magnetic Laboratorium / Marisela La Grave
New York City, USA
Business Class is an inter-media installation set in a public space. The work is an investigation
on contemporary issues in the fields of science, technology, art and design. The project depicts a group
of contemporary leading thinkers discussing inside a futuristic aluminum air streamer carefully installed
in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, while a crowd of business people line up outside
waiting to have their luggage searched by agents.
Three large scale video projections on walls around the trailer show the thinkers conversing inside
the capsule, close range details of the contents inside the luggage and the audience presence in space.
The Installation is time-based and highly audiovisual giving the audience the opportunity to be included
visually in the spirit of the work.
