SAFETY MEASURES

TIM ETCHELLS

Series of instruction cards

Visitors to the gallery are each given a card bearing the words Safety Measures on one side and a simple instruction on the reverse. The instructions which make up Safety Measures suggest modes, behaviours, tactics and systems for avoiding danger – some practical and common-sense; others mythical or bordering on desperate. Each instruction serves as a frame through which to view and encounter the world while at the same time playfully inviting the museum visitors to alter their behaviour once they leave the museum.
