The shadow of progress

By Leo Gullbring
Unintended or not, caused by the ’human factor’, by sheer calculation, or by terrorists, accidents cast the inevitable shadow of contemporary society. In presenting works made by Tony Oursler, Cai Guo-Qiang, Nancy Rubin, and others, the French philosopher and architect Paul Virilio comments on 9.11 by evoking a museum of accidents at Fondation Cartier, in Paris. The question at heart is the covert fact that our faith in progress has mass-produced accidents and catastrophes as its unavoidable byproduct.
