Thank you e-flux for reminding me of Rirkrit Tiravanija‘s puzzels.

Foster, You’re Dead is a collaborative project by the artist Rirkrit Tiravanija and designer Neil Logan. It is based on the science-fiction novel Foster, You’re Dead by Philip K. Dick. Relating to the description in the short story of a family that is ridiculed because they cannot afford a bomb shelter, Tiravanija and Logan construct a site-specific installation in which the main topics of Tiravanija’s work are explored and mixed with the 1950’s American Cold War atmosphere and futuristic imagery of atomic aftermath.
