Resident Alien I and II, 1997

I hammered the metal floor of a standard sea cargo container with heat. As a result, the container’s floor resembled a landscape reminiscent of the Judean Desert. Visitors were given the opportunity to enter the container and climb the terrain, In the top right corner of the container, I hung an intriguing box in which a small radio was playing music.

Upon inserting their heads in the box, viewers found themselves rising from an Eastern

toilet hole.
