Image shows a detail of the work
Images of all the four elements, here

„I chose different street corners in New York  where I would stand and loudly repeat
several times one chosen sentence (being each time a permutation of the sentence
"I will make bets that I can't lose"). During the process I was photographed. Later, 
I used the printed out photographs to re-photographe them pulling them up and down
in front of a photo booth camera accepting the pre-established shooting time of the
camera to add an element of chance to the way the images would appear on the photo booth stripes. The speakers' corner that the title is mentioning refers to the Speakers' Corner in London parks, the most known be the one in the northeast corner in Hyde Park. A Speakers’ Corner is an area where open-air public speaking, debate and discussion are allowed. The one in Hyde Park is located on the site that the Tyburn gallows used for
public executions.“
