(mechanism is suspended)
Hall filled with created objects/suspended silences Can be raised or lowered

13   Main Hall has connected unit which contains exposition on the History of Mythical Animals (from each Country). This unit is also a factory where animals are reproduced. After completion of fabrication/reproduction all Animals are impaled on a vertical Merry-Go-Round shaft. They are then installed, and begin their circular journey. The Merry-Go-Round is enclosed within a high circular wall. At the top of the wall a cantilever stadium is erected. The movement of the Myths can be observed from above: their cycle is slow.
13A   Series of cages for the internment of recaptured Mythical Animals. Also for the exhibition of familiar beasts.
14   At the opposite end of the Hall there is located an Operating Theater. From the south wall of the Hall a long extension is added; a Shooting Gallery is constructed. The long Gallery has side extensions. The farthest away from the point of firing-exit is a two-dimensional flat mannequin. From a distance it appears to be abstract. Approaching the firing­ mechanism a progressive series of mannequins move into more and more three-dimensionality until the completed figure faces the barrel of the gun, point-blank. After the explosion this body is removed to the Operating Theater for an autopsy which is monitored throughout the Fair.
15   The Fair ends in a display. All Mythical Animals, all Puppets, all Marionettes and all Mannequins are impaled on vertical rods that have been placed in the Lake water. A Time Keeper equipped with a flame­ thrower sets them on fire. When ash on water disappears the Audience retires into their own.
