Gedankenskulptur   

2012

The installation Gedankenskulptur was developed for the Festival of Art and Science in Trier, curated and organized as part of my initiated group We Convert our Mind to Creativity. It offers the visitor interactive scientific, social and communal participation. The audience is given the possibility to use the Gedankenskulptur in an individual sense- whereas one person wants to enjoy the visual experience of the light projection or the haptic feeling of the fabric sculpture another person might be interested in the auditive scientific information about the human cognition, or wants to actually move trough the installation together with a dancer.

The main subject of the art work is the multi-faceted way of documenting "the human perception". The challenge is the experiment to interpret this fragile and yet very obvious theme in an installation and action. Within the exhibition room we sat up a 2m high wood sculpture, connected with various screws. The wood skeleton was covered with a tailored cloth in the color of the skin / anatomy. 




The installation in 2012 was missing 2 further sensual experiences. The concrete idea is to touch all major senses within this installation: not only by hearing the audio play, seeing the neural-like projections, touching and being touched within the interactive performance, but also by smelling and tasting.

Special thanks to the participants of the FH Trier for helping with the construction, Nynne Christoffersen and Sara Sboul for helping with the fabric cover, Troels J Christoffersen for taking pictures, Igor for helping with the audio play (featuring Miriam Maibücher, Troels J Christoffersen, Nynne J Christoffersen). And the donators of the fabric!

The installation was exhibited in the context of the Festival of Art and Science Trier, and the exhibition "KlangArt" inTrier, DE.
