The Ways Things May Go
The way things may go
The way things may go – an installation of causally linked processes, that the Class de Campo has created with partners of three other universities- will be shown at the European Media Art Festival Osnabrück:
»The Ways Things May Go« is a meditation on invented causality in a networked world. Taking the first cue from Fischli / Weiss’ »Der Lauf der Dinge«, Alberto de Campo, Hannes Hoelzl, Julian Rohrhuber and students built little causal pro-cesses with two or more possible outcomes: For example, a series of falling domino stones could split into two, and thus provoke a random decision in the physical world. Which end of the process is reached determines which causal process is activated next, so a dynamic topology of invented causal relations emerges within the network of available elements. »The Ways Things May Go« is a joint project between UdK Berlin (Alberto de Campo), HfK Bremen (Hannes Hoelzl), IMM Düssel- dorf (Julian Rohrhuber) and Angewandte Wien (Nico Kirisits, Klaus Filip), and open for future extension.
