The Center for Cultural Opportunity
In The Center for Cultural Opportunity (1996/99), a synthetic voice cheerfully welcomes you into a utopian arena of unlimited possibility, where artists are supported and treasured as indispensable pillars of a free and forward-thinking society. In reality, you are ushered into an endless queue of applicants in a poorly-lit reception area, a horrific bureaucratic nightmare of broken promises and dashed hopes.
