The Thing Outside - collage #1, #2 & #3

The Thing Outside was initially established as a live lecture on the discovery of a mysterious thing, a large patio umbrella and a table (without chairs). During a five day investigation into the nature and the possible motives of that thing outside, I compiled three videos, one slide show and various Photoshop images. About half a year later when I was stationed in Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, as part of The Red Van research project, I came across a group of people who organized a street festival that would bring together Italians and immigrants. As an outsider, i.e. not classified as an Italian nor an immigrant, I found myself outside the festival circle and it all morphed into a thing, something I did not know, something that frightened me. The only thing left for me to do, was to record he location, the people, the event. It then became obvious to me that there was a intense connection between the encounter with the thing outside in Soiano and the thing outside in Casellammare del Golfo. The three collages are part of the first presentation of The Thing Outside in London as part of a group show organized and curated by Infinity Bunce and Sarah Jefferies Read more: http://jayrechsteiner.com/the_thing_outside.htm
