Rirkrit Tiravanija’s work defies media-based description, as his practice combines traditional object making, public and private performances, teaching, and other forms of public service and social action. With his print ‘A Moment of Life’ the artist shows his sympathy with the ideas of Guy Debord and the Situationist movement. In 2005 among other statements the artist stated:
“…I am interested in no destination
I am interested in constructing new destinations
I am interested in “a moment of life concretely and deliberately constructed by the collective organization of a unitary ambience and a game of events” (Internationale Situationniste, no. 1)
I am interested in the construction of a situation that does not necessarily amount to very much
I am interested in…”.
