Kurzbeschreibung“Perhaps the only difference between me and other people is that I've always demanded more from the sunset. More spectacular colors when the sun hit the horizon. That's perhaps my only sin.”
Joe, Nymphomaniac: Vol. I
LernzielIn this course you will select a building and create a persona that both is and is not yourself. Through writing a text with the help of a library (Xenotheka) and Machine Intelligence (Ask.Alice search engine), you will mobilise that persona and set it to work in a space.
From an ‘elsewhere’ to ‘anywhere’, we can animate spaces and make them talk; we can create a persona.
InhaltSetting:
House, Library and Me

Play:
If the walls could speak . . . what would they demand?
We use space to create multiple personae, all with different tempers. A million chattering voices.
Avatars, yes, but what could they do?
The inside becomes the outside: the part becomes the whole. One little room becomes an everywhere. The creation of a space that is you.
But how do we get them to talk?
By mobilising multiple personae and setting them to work in a space. By creating an alter-ego from the perspective of an element.
Like Captain Planet?
Air - Earth - Fire - Water. A house characterised by four humours and four elements in balance.
What is a house but a coded balance that shifts?
‘Even Bergsonian duration is in need of a runner’. Deleuze and Guattari’s conceptual personae include the Socrates of Plato, the Dionysus of Nietzsche, the Idiot of Nicholas of Cusa. But what if the concept is yourself?
