Two-Legged Effigy (Do You Remember Me?)
Laughter. Memorial exorcism. Candy. Disfigurement. Let the good times roll.
Einsamste Einsamkeit is an installation, a machine which consumes the spectator, and immerses them in a hypersensory examination of Nietzsche’s theory of eternal recurrence and the individual’s own experience of time.
We are developing an installation that simulates Friedrich Nietzsche’s theory of Eternal Recurrence: the idea that everything one has ever experienced in life will repeat itself again and again into infinity. We are constructing a machine made of lighting instruments, sound rigs, video networks, and raw material sculptures that will explore the physical nature of Nietzsche’s proposition. Using remote surveillance technology and live audience input, along with precollected samples of metadata and the mathematical algorithms that make up our daily lives, this device will challenge the way you think of the present moment as well as all those before and after it.
There will be a public showing TBD. More info to come.
Einsamste Einsamkeit is part of a larger series delving into the works of Nietzsche including Zara Notes and a third work Weimar Mausoleum (still on paper). This series will culminate in a larger work, Nietzsche Triptych, at a time/location TBD.
