The Adventure of the Empty House

2019 | Site-specific installation | Collaboration with the Faculty for Architecture of TU Munich


In order to explore the intersections between image and sound, we got invited by Munich based Composer, Producer and DJ Benedikt Brachtel. In collaboration with the faculty for architecture of the technical university TUM, we conceived a site-specific installation with images by Viennese artist Thomas Albdorf. The images are from his work »General View«. We installed them using both large prints on PVC as used on construction fences, as well as projections. The install was presented in the former office building of Deckel Maschinen Werke, conceived by famous architect Walter Henn – the one who had also built the famous Osram office buildings. Over 6 floors, visitors would walk through the installations and be guided by sound-loops, created by Benedikt Brachtel. Benedikt did a live performance on the top floor, mixing all sound loops and generating a new piece. This experiment enabled us to experiment with several things that are new to our practice: The intersection between photographic images and sound, as well as the installation of images in non-gallery spaces.
