IN OPPOSITION TO COPERNICUS (RETROBEWEGUNG)
Apparent retrograde Human motion into geocentrism, egocentrism and centrism in general. The work represents the Sun moving around the Earth, which reflects humanity misled into irreversible decay.

I BELIEVE IN.. ? (BEWEGUNG DER BEDEUNTUNG)
Now almost universally despised as a symbol of Nazism, before it was subverted to promote the tenents of National Socialism, the Swastika represented light and hope.The installation shows the circulation of the Swastika through different cultures. The intention of the work is a retrospective of this twelve thousand years old symbol which represents prosperity, eternity and the Sun in many ancient and modern cultures. The installation was inspired in part by the dark history of the Schloss-bergstollen, where it was originally placed.

SHIFTING SANDS (BEWEGUNG DER MORAL)
The constant back-and-forth motion of the luminous swing reflects the wavering boundaries of contemporary morals.

KEEP WRITING (BEWEGUNG DER WÖRTER)
An automated typewriter taps out the word ’’Wegerl’’ (Pathway), corresponding to verbal communications. The piece interprets the diversity of words and languages and their liberated revolutions in the flow of the space-time continuum.

HARMONY WITH GALILEO (PROBEWEGUNG)
