Speed Aram Bartholl

The Installation Speed is a transformation of the big flashing arrows from the computer game "Need for Speed Underground 2, NFSU 2" to real space.
Although the computer games always try to imitate the physical world there are always elements, objects and behaviours which only exist in the virtual world.
In the game NFSU 2 the player drives a car through a simulated city. Part of the game is to drive races against opponents through the city. To make the race track more visible big flashing arrows separate the track from the rest of the city. The car of the player can not cross these boundaries but normal city traffic can.

The installation will be realized in the beginning of September 2006 at a Public Space exhibition in Bremen.
