“The Ways Things May Go“ (2012, ongoing)
Generative Art / Computational Art class at UdK Berlin; Hannes Hoelzl, University of the Arts Bremen; Julian Rohrhuber, Music Informatics / IMM Duesseldorf; the Digitale Klasse at Angewandte Kunst, Vienna.
"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 Hoelz, Julian Rohuber and students built little causal processes 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. For the CTM.13 Exhibition, more than a dozen modules are carefully assembled into a relatively small space to create the image of a highly complex, sound-producing kinetic machine. "The Ways Things May Go" is a joint project between UdK Berlin (Alberto de Campo), HfK Bremen (Hannes Hoelzl), IMM Düsseldorf (Julian Rohrhuber) and Angewandte Wien (Nico Kirisits, Klaus Filip), and open for future extension.
The works in TWTMG shown at ctm 2013 are realized by students of Alberto de Campo / Hannes Hoelzl and guests.
