No, Adam, no they don't. Unless it's for the irony.
On an unrelated note here is a partner piece to this, both of which were made last semester for uni.
A piece of looped, black and white surveillance-esque footage of walking figures was played onscreen, distorted by a small lens attached to the end of the inverted pyramid (the black bit).
Ostensibly this referenced the correlation between physical distance, recognition and empathy, but really it was more about "ARGH WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING? IT'S ALMOST THE END OF SEMESTER AND I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH WORK!"
A sophisicated practice have I.
