At first glance, it might seem like a massive prank played on the people of Istanbul, but it is, in fact, a spatial art installation. Artist Doris Salcedo created an artwork named "1550 Chairs Stacked Between Two City Buildings" for the Istanbul Biennial, where she placed 1,550 chairs between two buildings in 2003 to represent the masses of faceless migrants who support our globalized economy. In 2002, Salcedo created another installation at the Palace of Justice in Bogota, where she placed 280 chairs to honor those who died in a failed guerrilla coup seventeen years earlier.

In November to December 1973, a small house in La Machine (Nièvre) gained attention as a young boy named Dominique Perrot claimed to hear knocks on his bedroom wall every evening, convinced that a "spirit" wanted to speak to him. The boy's parents, worried about the situation, sought help from the local police. Despite their investigations, the officers were unable to rationally explain the origin of the noises. Police officer Bernard Guilbert was informed by the teenager's parents and went to the scene with his tape recorder, determined to solve the mystery. He recorded almost thirty minutes of the strange noises on magnetic tape, but to this day, it remains unclear what the young boy was actually hearing.
