sexy curves




In cooperation with Gerald Nestler

O.K. center of contemporary art, Linz, 1999/2000.


sexy curves is supposed to illuminate the phenomenon of the interference between worldwide competitive systems and personal life pictures in the form of a juxtaposition or superposition of stockmarket curves on cardiograms measuring heart rates, taken during the recitation of selected textual passages.
These curves are set to trade noises transmitted live from the CME und CEBOT and to the amplified heartbeats of the artists.
The noises of the live transmissions metaphorically enclose the acoustic space of the spoken texts. Only when this "sound threshold" in the noise of the fabricated virtuality has been penetrated, can the individual text, a symbol for individual mythologies, be perceived.
