Toy Factory Fire

In this audio-visual installation, a narrator triggers electronic music, audio samples and video sequences to generate a world that is part documentary and part dream-like hallucination.

The heart of this piece is recorded testimonies from people whose lives were deeply affected by the 1993 Kader factory fire in Thailand. A group of artists conducted interviews, developing the stories into a narrative that follows the aftermath. Toy Factory Fire is presented as a stream of consciousness narrative of a businessman en route to Bangkok. Jet lag and a violent storm combine to plunge the man into a state of confusion and near-panic in which he recalls witnessing the catastrophe at Kader first-hand.

This project brings together a group of local artists in the creation of a new work that will challenge the practices of all involved.
