showing :: of the first results of the >process in between<

and openLaboratory

A performance of the results of an experimental research project 

in between spaces, identities – cultures and words.




In our daily life, 'words' are essential to recognize things and

necessary as a communication tool.

But what is the "word"?
At first thought words can act as symbols to recognize

something as a concrete entity or substance by its name.
But words are more obscure than we think.

Because the process of giving a word meaning is based on

your experience or some special incident or event.
This is very subjective especially if you think about feelings

or dreams. Someone's dream is someone else`s nightmare.
The word is closely related to your identity.

You express your identity with speech and conversely

by speaking you create your own identity

Performance/Installation/performative Installation

Turkey in Vienna. Historically defined places,  sites in the pesent time.
What are the frequences – what kind of vibrancy oscillates forward in time?
Who think about it, and what do they think, or does somebody think, at all? Integration?

Türkei in Wien. Geschichtlich besetzte Orte, Schauplätze im Jetzt.
Was sind ihre Frequenzen? Welche Schwingung schwingt mit, nach, vor?
Wer denkt darüber was oder denkt man überhaupt? Integration.

Ein Research-Projekt von Honey&Mood Production.
Mit freundlicher Unterstützung der Labfactory Wien.
Dank an Lena Wicke Aengenheyster.

Production: Honey&Mood

This experimental research project is about the process

of finding a way to create a work based on the reflection
of cultural background and identity on the meaning of words.
