crossroads (what to do) - a chorus of GPSs

Artist Garvin Nolte describes it as:

The video installation "crossroads (what to do)" deals with the influence of others onto one's own path of life in an abstract way.

Blogger Hilary Perkins has a good take on the ordered yet chaotic scene:

There's something very mesmerising and poetic about this. All of those calm, electronic voices in a sort-of rhythm. I don't know if it would have the same effect if it were in English; you don't need much German to understand it, but the language difference does give you a little bit of distance. The time taken to internally translate shifts them from a series of instructions to a flow of narration.
