Hidden Observatory, 2008

Hidden Observatory was an intervention in the elevator of the former Post CS building in Amsterdam. I built an unremarkable double wall in the elevator and hit behind this fake wall.

The purpose of this intervention was to create a safe zone within a fear space (elevator) and reverse the fear situation: Instead of being locked up in the cage of the elevator, being exposed to the gaze of the passengers and losing control, I was the observer myself, I could play with my hiding (one moment I was perfectly hidden, another moment my voice was recognized) which enabled me to regain control over the situation.
