Free Repair

Roland Roos repairs broken, displaced or damaged things in public space. Each repair is intended to restore a particular detail to its pre-damaged state. Before and after the repair a photograph is taken of the unsolicited assignment. The photo taken before the repair is the only existing document of the damaged objects and thus becomes a unicum. All of these unicum photos are on sale for 320CHF each which is the average amount of money that is spent for one repair (materials and labor). Free Repair was a two year long project. It ended in april 2010. MORE

Bodies in Urban Spaces – Cie. Willi Dorner

“bodies in urban spaces” ist eine temporäre Intervention in unterschiedlichen urbanen architektonischen Räumen. Die Intention von “bodies in urban spaces” ist es, urbane funktionelle Strukturen und die daraus resultierenden limitierten Bewegungsmöglichkeiten und -gewohnheiten aufzuzeigen. Durch Positionierung der Körper an ausgewählten Stellen provoziert die Intervention einen Denkprozess und schafft Irritationen.

image-fulgurator by julius von bismarck.

The Image Fulgurator by Julius von Bismarck is a device for physically manipulating photographs. It intervenes when a photo is being taken, without the photographer being able to detect anything. The manipulation is only visible on the photo afterwards.

In principle, the Fulgurator can be used anywhere where there is another camera nearby that is being used with a flash. It operates via a kind of reactive flash projection that enables an image to be projected on an object exactly at the moment when someone else is photographing it. The intervention is unobtrusive because it takes only a few milliseconds. Every photo another photographer takes of an object at which the Fulgurator is also aimed is affected by the manipulation. Hence visual information can be smuggled unnoticed into the images of others.
