ROADSIDE PICKNICK AREA
Thomas J. Jelinek (SE/AT), Jorge Sánchez-Chiong (VE/AT)
Entropy is an international, transdisciplinary research project on entropic processes. In the course of a two-year discourse process, artists and scientists have followed the traces of the famous “H-Theorem” of thermodynamic theory in collaborative settings.
The process has materialized in various installations and performances and has been condensed into artistic-scientific labs and a contemporary opera.
In the ROADSIDE PICKNICK AREA, it is spread out as a walkable media landscape of current entropic discourses. The empty surface is structured by the fragments, artefacts, apparatuses, objects and material memorial traces that have arisen in the course of the research, thus setting an artificial mind-map. Within this automated theater, passers-by have the possibility to interact with objects in performative situations, and to meet experts in order to design a common cognitive reality.
You only see, what you know.
