Real Life in 3D

August 2010, Salzburg Fortress, Salzburg

Green and red threads are tightened throughout the room, the audience approaches the installation with 3D goggles. In fact, the 3D effect will occur when looking at the lines, slight irritation is experienced, even though it is a ‘real’ 3dimensional object anyway. The levels of perception shift.

The initial point for this work was the thought of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, which states, that ‘the more precisely the position (note: of a subatomic particle, such as an electron) is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa.’ This principle, to me, is not only true in physics.

In the case of this installation the interaction is sensory. What influenced my understanding and my perception of it? How does my brain proceed the information it gets and how does that influence my interaction and sensation around the installation?

Real Life in 3d (Curtain)

January – June 2011, Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna

A curtain of red and blue strings divides the room (where not only performances are taking place but an exhibition is set up too) into two equal spaces; therefore questioning the (re)location and evaluation of the situation of the spectator as well as of the performers, who are constantly changing their places of performances with each other.
