Coney Island, Technology of the Fantastic

If life in the metropolis creates loneliness and alienation, Coney Island counterattacks with the Barrels of Love: Two horizontal cylinders - mounted in line - revolve slowly in opposite directions. At either end a small staircase leads up to an entrance.

One feeds men into the machine, the other women.
It is impossible to remain standing.
Men and women fall on top of each other.

The unrelenting rotation of the machine fabricates synthetic intimacy between people who would never otherwise have met.
This intimacy can be further processed in the Tunnels of Love, an artificial mountain constructed next to the Barrels of Love. Outside the mountain the newly formed couples board a small boat that disappears inside a dark tunnel leading to an interior lake. Inside the tunnel complete obscurity ensures at least visual privacy; from the muffled noises it is impossible to guess how many couples are crossing the lake at any one time. The rocking of the small boats on the shallow water reinforces the sensuality of the experience...

By definition 'bangers 'n' mash' is a dish made with cooked sausages served with boiled then mashed potatoes .. >>
