When all the world is a hopeless jumble

230 crowd-control barriers, lacquer
diameter 26m

When all the world is a hopeless jumble uses crowd-control barriers and prismatic colors as a playful statement on repression and strategies of resistance. The grey, galvanized barricades, which are globally employed to control and restrain crowds by police and security forces, are placed in a large sphere. By placing the barriers in a sphere, the linear divide in power is dismissed and new dynamics are opened up.

The title of the work alludes to the deleted opening line of the ballad from the movie The Wizard of Oz. Written in 1938, a moment in history with a decisive political situation.
