“The artist’s handling of “hyperspace” is impregnated by an action factor central to his artistic and political system. The total flux of images set against perpetual horizons is invariably countered by a device introduced to distract or dislocate. In his 2001 installation at the Miami Art Museum, the drawings on the museum walls encountered a challenging counterpart in the form of a public telephone. Visitors could call anywhere in the world for five minutes. Crayons next to the telephone encouraged callers to write down their comments, typical of the graffiti of the telephone booths. In this context, the spectator recovered his critical distance, his individual and collective temporality; instead of simulated illusions, hypnosis was transformed into action, into experience.”
