Orange = happiness, enthusiasm, dignity, prosperity. This is the colour that radiates optimism, stimulates activity, appetite, and encourages socialization. In the search of other symbolic meanings of the orange colour , I realised that the black box is in fact orange. Hence, this concept is directly taken from the aeronautical use of the device that commonly is known as a black box, which records the audio environment within the flight deck of an aircraft and it is only used for the purpose of investigating an airplane accident. Here the black box replica has the same purpose, only it is used in a different context. Positioned in jardinière in the city square Macedonia, it recorded the sounds from its immediate vicinity. Noise, rustle, sounds of footsteps, words, conversations, thoughts… Those are the sounds that should be read as signs when posing the questions and giving the answers regarding the “fall” of a society and its lost values, as well as perceiving the human role in that process. This piece does not play on the presumption that this society has already fallen, but uses its means for observation of the society in order to detect its state.

The black box was positioned and initialized on November 1st 2007 at 13:44:25h. On November 8th at 16:35:16 it was switched off. This transcript represents the last 31 minutes before its switching off.
It’s a Money Party – a global youtube election redux, brought to you by Berlin Backyard Radio. Featuring excerpts from youtube remixed news and comedy, presented by the circus runaways.
The circus runaways left Manchester to follow the circus and got stuck somewhere in the midwestern American state of Ohio. This is a youtube mashup of the most popular videos generated around that global media circus called the American Presidential election. Guests include Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel, comedians and journalists. Of course, some comments made it into the mix. As the election is nearing an end, this is a little slice of the cacophony of media that made its way onto your only global video sharing site. One day, the runaways hope to make it home to Europe.
