Stage

The fourth screen shows video of a chunky reel-to-reel sound machine, the device broadcasting synthetic bird chirping into the square. It's this artificiality, of sound and images, that ultimately limited Smackers as a social experiment. Drawn into a "performance landscape" by voyeuristic curiosity and thrills, park passers-by were presented with imitation intimacy that encouraged them to stay estranged.
