Affect and Interface
Working title for a multi-layered project with the aim to grasp “the interface” through combining affect theory, new materialim and critical posthumanism with practice based research.

Structures of Power: Manifestation
I built up an archive consisting of video and sound artefacts collected during research-stays in Hamburg, Germany and Seoul and Busan, South Korea. There are underwater recordings of empty aquariums, video documents of animal-resistance (e.g. breaking out and been put back into the water), surveillance, and punishment. An installation with the title "Aquarium I" followed as a first part of a series of works around this topic. ︎

Noryangjin Fishmarket, February 2018: Two aquariums just filled with water and an underwater-microphone, two aquariums with fishes.
