“Suburbs of Fear” deals with city space and the sense of danger. According to a lot of surveys people fear the most in districts which tend to have a rather bad reputation and are considered to have lower living standards. The same applies to deserted parks or bosks. At night time when the urban environment is even more deserted and every slightly moving shadow can be interpreted as a threat, every street corner may seem like a daunting place. Playing with the perception of reality, the installation illustrates the often irrational mechanisms of fear.
