The Architecture of Control
Joram Raaijmakers has studied the position of the watchtower within the military system. His aim was to trigger a conversation about the objects and to see where this can lead. He began by collecting different specimen, ‘dismantling’ them, and then manipulating their scale, material, and function. They ended up as silver-plated teaspoons, referring to a traditional souvenir form. The coordinates of the original are stamped on the back, so people can actively seek them out using a GPS system, and discuss what they find with the people they meet there.
