REPLICA// 2015

Winner of „Elektronikland Salzburg“ Price 2015 for interdisciplinary projects.
Content Award Vienna Nominee in the category „Sound & Vision“ 2016.

The audiovisual Installation REPLICA deals with the subject of the human-machine-interface and the consequential transformation of communication and perception in terms of the body in space. The body is progressively losing its importance, faced with the present shift from physical towards virtual space. One loses its orientation and equilibrium in its virtual surrounding. The drawers are getting smaller the freedom of movement tighter. The body and mind are feeling directed and claustrophobic. Experiencing the weight and restraint of computation we revolt and fight internally. Our individuality is seized by the media apparatus. We become standardized to increase the precision of calculation. A lead blanket is pushing and keeping us down. Shivering and devitalized; we try hard to stay physical, self-thinking and self-perceiving human-beings.

It was exhibited in April 2015 at the Pratersauna Vienna and the Spektakel Vienna during the Sound:frame Closing-Party.
