Dialog des Herzens - Version I
performed with Chris Hunter 
10 - 15 min.
2012

“The performance can be read as an ambiguous, bizarre metaphor, which moves in the tension-area of the peculiarities of engineered forms of communication. Modern machine bound communication can create closeness but also distance; it can simplify the flow of information but also make it more complicated. Either way immediacy is almost always lost. Intimacy taken to the outside world (here into art space) exposed to constant assessment by third parties, meets the spirit of our time, in which we are constantly informed about the relationship status and declarations of love of acquaintances.”
