audio visual installation and performance, 2018
mixed media, variable size
The installation Heimliches arbeiten beginnt. consists of a video and a ramp, it visualizes an absurd, automated and purpose-free work. The video shows a blue screen and a mouse cursor moving on it — all you can hear is clicking and scrolling the cursor. At the same time, a sheet metal car moves slowly up and down on the ramp, creating a loud squeal of wheels that mingles with the seemingly disoriented click. The title of the installation refers to the first stage of being a workaholic.
The installation was part of the same named solo exhibition Heimliches arbeiten beginnt. in Vienna. It consisted of three works: Green Screen Tree, break (orange) and Heimliches arbeiten beginnt. which are strongly interlocked with each other and create a strongly interconnected absurd world.
