to all of you who joined me yesterday at the opening of my installation IN-between-SPACE at the Burgkapelle of the Museum for Contemporary Art Carinthia
A view into the IN-between-SPACE that I created at the Museum Chapel

From the review of Thomas Miessgang:
In-between-Space refers to a particular dimension, with an extension that expands between outer space and the mystique of the inner mind; between the hot and the cold existential zones; between earth-grounded existence and connectedness; and to the subjectively felt self-loss in the vastness of the universe: “Ground Control to Major Tom…”
In-between-Space deals with musical and electro-acoustic means, and engages in a dialectic of ontological stability and transcendental homelessness. The multilateral sound-pool addresses the always precarious relationship between man and machine, the conflict between the relentlessness imposed by computer algorithms and the vulnerability of the human voice….
And in my words:
Where do I begin and you end? And where do you end and where do I begin? If a part of my body is transplanted into another body after I die, do I really die or does my life continue? And when I think and my thoughts flow freely, does this mean that I move beyond my body, my existence expanding? Where does consciousness take form when our body is no more? What is the role of consciousness when it no longer has a body within which to take form? Is this the IN-between.SPACE, full of the disappeared. Every single conscience resides there – to guide our body. It is our shadow felt as our emotion, encoded in our voice.
