Interactive soundinstallation 2001
emergency button

apocalypso is a work about war, using invisibility and interactivity within the gallery space.
An emergency-button is embedded in the wall and triggers the soundinstallation. Pushing the button you hear a soundcollage of sacred music and communication of NATO-pilots during the war in Kosovo.
Interactivity is reduced to the minimum: a button rules reality.
