Building site fences, wooden cargo object, digitally printed fabric, belts, smartphones, AR sculpture, ambient sounds
Meditationsculpture.zip is part of the Mixed Media Installation This Site is Buffering II, a cathartic space for the human being of the post-digital age.
In the centre of the Schuhhaussaal (venerable hall) of the art association Ulm, surrounded by site fences, stands an object, like a piece of cargo, inspired by construction sites, public spaces and means of transportation. There isn’t a space more real and honest, never completed, a symbol of a steadily continuous working process.
The visitor is given a smartphone at the entrance, which he can use to augment the cargo object. A digital sculpture is projected into the room. Fixed on its smartphone, it appears to be in a meditative state. By looking at the smartphone and circling the digital sculpture, the visitor becomes part of the meditative process.
