In our society we are used to record all events of importance
on photographs. But what seemed to be a significant moment
can have lost its meaning years later. Dia-Exit is an installation which destroys slides.
In exchange for
an apple pie a number of amateur-photographers have given
Steven Jouwersma their slides-collections of weddings and
holidays. This archive of slides is used in his installation
Dia-Exit. For one last time the visitors of the exhibition
can see the slides before they are pulverized: asking to
see the next slide sends the previous slide to a shredder
to be destroyed for ever.
The installation was shown at V2_ in 2007.
