Electric Hotel by Requardt

Electric Hotel is a lonely, bizarre and beautiful outdoor spectacle; a uniquely designed, fly-by-night hotel brought to vivid life through dance and sound. Sitting on the outside looking in, the audience snatches glimpses of the do-not-disturb lives unfolding behind the floor to ceiling windows.

Wearing headphones to eavesdrop on the internal spaces of the building they watch the residents in their private rooms: the natural habits, the unnatural fantasies and housekeeping of wildly varied quality. The privilege and thrill for the voyeur is seeing the bigger picture.
