Titled "23 September 1994" after the opening date of the entire inSITE94 exhibition, Ulf Rollof's installation consisted of a circular railroad situated at the defunct border rail-crossing site in Colonia Libertad in Tijuana. Just yards from the border fence, one could take a ride on this circular track where a single wagon with five fir trees planted in empty oil drums went around in endless circles to a dizzying effect. However, rather than being transported around on the track itself there was just a single seat at the hub of the circle and the view from the seat was directed straight at the fir trees, so that although movement occurred the outlook one had remained the same. -- inSITE94
