performance at klingt.org festival 2007 at fluc, vienna, austria

Labor is a performance project which questions the role of scientific
practise in our society. Which technical tools, scientific apparatus and
experiments are in charge of getting hold of the unseen? Which
conjectures and thinking models are used to represent phenomena which no
longer can be conceived with the naked eye? How could this hidden
speculative potential become artistically productive by turning it into
a score or an instruction for taking action? By conducting dubious
experiments, mis-using laboratory equipment as sound sources daring
approaches to distill the essence of the "transacoustic" are examined.
