Superflex - Flooded McDonald's - Still - 2008

A replica of a popular “burger bar” was created and then slowly flooded. The action was recorded as trays and fast food containers were lifted by the rising water. The visuals register as dream or nightmare depending on the dietary habits of the viewer.
