Exit Poll: Jane & Louise Wilson at the Serpentine
Sunday 19 September 1999
ENGLISH TEACHER, 25
The themes they were looking at were interesting, and there was something very unsettling about the places they've chosen to document. They've done it well - it's like being taken on a tour of somewhere you wouldn't normally go. I think they've judged it very well: you can really feel what they're trying to get at.

I felt uncomfortable every time I walked into a space because I had to decide where to position myself. Often someone else would come in, and I was challenged not only to watch what was going on, but to work with others in the room. That's what I found most interesting. I didn't know their work, but I learnt a lot today.

I didn't think of it as art: I saw it as technology. If that is modern art then fair enough, and it gives you a message. But without a computer it wouldn't have been possible. It was very effective at creating the mood. It didn't feel like I was watching it; rather I felt I was a part of it.
I thought it was quite boring, really. I didn't understand what they were trying to say or show to people. Maybe it belongs in a cinema rather than an art gallery, and I thought the photos were pointless. It was visual, but if they were making a political point I didn't get it.
