Art Event Overview:


    In the installation three coffin-like glass cases are filled with soil and dead leaves. Automatic ventilation fans facilitate the decomposition process. The carbon dioxide produced is measured with sensors and translated into sound. As a result, the ‘coffin’ seems to slowly inhale and exhale as the CO2 level goes up and down. The video Succession shows the 9-day development process of a bacteria culture taken from the artist’s face.

    This project is part of the Pixelache Special Feature at ISEA2010 RUHR, co-produced with Pixelache and supported by AVEK and the Finnish Embassy Berlin.
