Wall­pa­per strip inter­ven­tion installed in the swim­ming pool area of “El Nogal” a very pres­ti­gious pri­vate club in down­town Bogotá. The strip is a made from pic­tures of a very par­tic­u­lar secu­rity strat­egy that is often used because of it’s effec­tive­ness and low price. Bro­ken bot­tles and splin­tered glass are inlaid within cement on the top of the walls.
This piece is a crit­i­cal pos­ture realated to the con­cern of wit­ness­ing the dras­tic gap between pri­vate and pub­lic spaces, it also res­cues the strange aggres­sive appeal of this form of secu­rity.
