#12061962 the unharmonious dome.

In an attempt to rid their subway stations and parking garages of homeless people and junkies, many big cities introduced the idea of continuously playing classical music in these places.
The theory being that the harmony of the classic pieces would mismatch with the unharmonious way of life of the homeless and drug sick, and thereby drive them away.
'The unharmonious dome' springs from the counter conclusion of the cities programs and is meant to serve as a refuge to recharge on the necessary dose of distress.
Within the dome the junky is provided with unpleasant imagery and disruptive music enriched with disturbing sound effects such as weeping children and fart sounds.
In addition cheap liquor can be consumed through a shared drinking straw, completing the experience.

this project has been realized by the 'german integrations bambi' in the framework of 'the PLAN'. 2012
