The installation shows a time-lapse video of a car park on Loita Street. The acceleration in the time frame makes visible the extent to which all the cars are reshuffled to squeeze as many cars as possible into the limited space.
THE CAR PARK
The car parks in Nairobi operate in quite a specific way. They occupy a finite amount of space, and receive a flat rate per car. Thus, it makes sense to get in as many cars as possible to make the maximum amount of money. The result is a constantly shifting pattern of cars as they are all shifted around, a bit like the old computer game tetris.
