The Office

Variable sizes

Various office furniture with artificial surfaces and made of synthetic materials, an old computer with Tetris playing, printer, dehumidifier, thermometer and hygrometer, a dry and dusty plant, dust, a door closer, a hot radiator and a door sign.

The office is an installation that meets the best conditions for creating static electricity through a certain combination of flooring, fabrics and indoor climate. That together means that you will be charging while being in the office depending on what kind of shoes you are wearing and eventually you will get an electric shock when you touch the handle to exit.

The installation was part of the group exhibition, Frederiksberg in the culture house, Den Gule Villa, which use to be the home of the salaried workers from the neighboring power plant. The exhibition took place in May 2010.
