The Message’ was performed by the canal in Birmingham, UK. The installation was made up of a mound of chalk, on top of which a sculpture was boxed in a wooden crate, which Fornieles walked around everyday for seven days. People were invited to write a message of hope or fear on a piece of paper, which Fornieles folded and posted into a hole in the crate. At the end of the festival the crate full of messages was set on fire and as it burned the sculpture of Mercury, the god of messages, was revealed.
