Wenn du die Spanplatte spüren möchtest,

series of photograms

50x60 cm, 40x30 cm


The photograms in the WBS70 series examine the dispersion of light throughout the interior of a typical East Berlin social housing complex, over the course of a day. For this project, a to-scale model replica of my place of residence during the years 1985-1995 was constructed and its interiors over light sensitive paper exposed, tracing the insidiousness of lightwaves. This research followed a journey between Hiroshima and Nagasaki, considering the finiteness of the sun.

Komposition für Ziegen und Klavier

Video, DVD, 9.30 min


Partitur für Klavier und Ziegenhorn


Die Komposition für Ziegen und Klavier ist eine offene Komposition, die lediglich die Einbringung des Instrumentes in ein Tiergehege vorsieht. Die Interaktion der Tiere  bleibt dabei unbestimmt, leitet sich von deren Physis ab.


Die Partitur notiert zwei Stimmen, einerseits die Klaviertöne und zum anderen die Aktionen des Ziegenhornes am Instrument. Ziel der Partitur, als einer nachträglichen Fixierung des Unbestimmten ist es, Aufführungen der Komposition durch menschliche Musiker zu ermöglichen.
