Final Count Down

The video installation Final Count Down was shown once during the inauguration of the American President Donald J. Trump on January 20, 2017.

A countdown clock can be seen on three large walls in which we hear the live sound of the inauguration that was broadcast on various TV channels at that time.

During the countdown, the clocks changed one by one to the image of the live broadcast. After the well-known words "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.",

the three walls changed to an adding clock.

With this installation, we want to refer to an era that is closing and a new era that is starting.
