Second Body

The concept of Second Body comes from the experience of driving cars. If I want to steer the wheel, to brake, to step on the gas, I don’t need to consciously think, yet the car can still go ahead, turn, and park at the correct spot according to my will.

Diaspora Maschine

The Diaspora Machine is dedicated to the phenomenon of scattering, diffusing, disseminating. The gigantic spiral packet chutes in the former Postal Service logistics center on the grounds of Linz’s main train station stand like a pre-modern mechanical signal warning of the diasporas.
