Bis einer heult.



Finally here's some documentation for my most recent art endeavour. I have a piece in this show 'Batman Elektronik' in Berlin right now. After not having had anything sculptural out for more than a year, this feels a bit like a comeback thing.

Bis einer heult

I'm not sure how and when I got inspired to build something out of inflatable weapons, but once I had them, I instantly felt the old love of materials and working with space again.

Inflatable Weapons

Also, my housemates were delighted when the first batch arrived:

I was surprised by how easy it actually was to glue those things together, but I didn't expect them to be made that badly. Over the course of building the sculpture, more or less every time I inflated it, I had to discover another seam that had cracked. A main offender was the gun I found this bizarre review for:

Instead of being 'pretty cool' as the lady here keeps insisting, this peace of shit had its seams ripping apart in different places at least 6-7 times, and of course it wasn't the only one doing that. Which meant that the sculpture most of the time deflated within minutes after being pumped up regardless of how many patches I'd already put on.

I thought of finding some automated solution for inflating it, but after some fruitless efforts of trying to find a strong enough electric pump, I decided to just do it by hand around every half hour during the private view. So if you happen to be in Berlin some time between now and the 19th of January, you're either gonna have to ask the gallery staff to inflate it for you or even better, do it yourself, to see it in all its glory...

Servas Salzburg...



What I learned today:

ALWAYS check your ticket thoroughly before you go to the airport. ESPECIALLY when you are absolutely sure you know which day you are travelling on. Chances are you're gonna waste 2,40 € for the bus and a lot of nerves because you think you missed your plane.

See you tomorrow, London.

Weehl



I've done a few recordings recently. This one is my favourite so far. The new sound is slowly coming into shape. I can't wait to properly test this stuff live!

This is probably the last thing I will have uploaded to Soundcloud before I'm gonna have to think about a different platform.

Please pop by if you feel like it.
