Paul Amitai’s In Between States is a work of personal and historical investigation and speculation, a detective story that merges contemporary field recording, archival documents, and fictional writings. The project examines the relationship between two adjacent sites – a post-World War II displaced persons camp and a present-day corporate industry park located outside of Frankfurt. In Between States also presents an alternate version of the camp as a space station orbiting Earth, devised through collaboration between governments and corporations. The installation is comprised of “lost transmissions” taken from the space station.
Exhibited at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, New York, November 14 - 30, 2013.
