One man unit [Performance & Video Sculpture]

A hybrid of man and sculpture, fully armed with consumer video and mobile projections in order to add another layer of images to our fictitious world. After dark the audience joins him on a quest to discover the narration within the trash bin of endless virtual footage streamed directly on walls, cars and the haptic body itself. Reality becomes a Holodeck, in which visual information is implemented only in order to lead to another, unreal experience.

PAUL WIERSBINSKI (Concept, Text, Video) studied video art with Mark Leckey and Douglas Gordon at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. He develops process based performances along complex sets, popular narrations and consumer technology. His works has been screened in intl. exhibitions (e.g. ISEA Albuquerque / ZKM Karlsruhe / NURTUREart New York City / Alma Enterprises London / MOCA Taipei) and he has held lectures and presentations, a.o. in the British Computer Society in London, at the Conference ISEA, Sabanci University Istanbul and Club Transmediale Berlin.
