Abstract [en]

The CT scanner scans the body horizontally, shooting narrow X-ray beams through the body to make a 2D image slice of a patient. A peristaltic pump, pumps a variety of fluids and is mainly used in biological systems such as the gastrointestinal tract. It is a controlled environment to separate, collect, and depict what humans are unable to see with the naked eye. These technological devices have become a standard of how humans repair and experience biology and ecology. However there are other experiences that bring one back to the physical and bodily awareness such as pausing, listening, connecting, and breathing. This can lead to a way of observing one’s surroundings slightly differently. A way of sensing the strangeness of reality, like perceiving our relation to technological developments and its social and ecological costs. To know that there is no way to separate, collect, and depict what in reality is entangled and complex, like air and water.

There are glass containers on the floor and hanging on the walls, and tubes, water circulating and there are piezo microphones, wires, speakers and silicone. Two dual systems of circulation. The outside is turned inside, like crystalline guts. Small air bubbles pass the microphones, leaking sound out into the space. At intervals, the peristaltic pumps fill the Pythagorean cups to the tip, then the entire content is drained through the base. Non-human sounds intermingle with the sounds of human breath and movements, both in a video work and during the exhibition in a performance.
