Alien Sphere, 2019

participatory installation

On Platform 12, an open space for collaboration on a research campus, the artist created an Alien_Sphere as a room-in-room installation with transparent and disruptive walls. Workbenches were prepared inside inviting participants for Posthuman Exercises, a program of seven transhuman mediations alienating from contemporary anthropocentrism. The exercises are a participatory practice in the framework of an art performance guiding through the meditation. They provide the experience of becoming humus as a human, instead of becoming man.

The project was supported by the WimmelResearch Fellowship from Akademie Schloss Solitude and Bosch GmbH Center for Research and Advance Engineering, Renningen/Germany.
