Jacques Tati

tati-oncle-house-1958

From ‘Mon Oncle’ (1958) by Jacques Tati.

Monsieur Hulot lives in the old neighborhood, at the top of a building where you can see the phases of construction over time, dependent on needs and means. The old neighborhood is disheveled, though not messy. The modern cars, and their regimented driving patterns, that we see in the modern part of town are nowhere around. Rather, folks still rely on rickety old carts. Fences and brick walls have come down, have been rebuilt, and are coming down again.

Rirkrit Tiravanija, ‘Dom-ino’ (1998)

In Rirkrit Tiravanija’s replica of the Dom-ino concept (1915) by le Corbusier, the spectator becomes the inventer and the actor of his own environment, in the interaction with his fellow visitor. The lower platform is equipped with a CD and cassette player, a TV, a kitchen corner with table and butagaz-cooker, a low table with poufs. The visitors are invited to use the house as they wish, and to share what they bring or find with the others.
