Acupuncture of a Wall

interactive installation

25th Youth Salon, Zagreb, Croatia, 1998

How to use:
You can thoroughly experience the process of wall acupuncture by taking a hammer into your dominant hand, an acupuncture needle in the other, finally to hammer the acupuncture needle into the desired spot on the wall.
The work is performed by the audience, while I provide the concept and “tools” required for wall acupuncture. It puts no weight on the visual experience, but focuses on the feeling in the moment of puncturing the wall with a metal needle, and the choice of an energy point on the wall.
