ME, THE BIG BAD WOLF AND THE RADICAL SENSE OF FREEDOM
What will happen to my instant-TV-road-movie dream of the freedom to ride, approach the sun, when I create the conditions of having enough time, a car, enough money and no fixed goal?
In summer 2003 I started an experiment in using myself as a dummy and the genre of the road movie as a form to deconstruct and tell the story of my search of the radical sense of freedom.

AS IS IF IT WERE NATURE - The Inverse Utopia
My task to stay on the road for 10 days, never leaving it,
my motivation is to test my capacity for being an ‘inter-person’ in ‘an inter-space’. The question at hand:
How can I feel free in a situation of total friction? What is this friction?
What are these shifts of normality? I know how I am supposed to use
this road – what happens if I give it another purpose by tramping along it? Approaching the normal on a physical level opens up a world of adventures and makes my categories and presumtions as useful as high heels on the Mount Everest.

NO TRACK WALK - den Weg brechen
I left the expressway at the St. Pankraz service station and made my way for 5 days alone through the countryside. The calculated breaking out from prepared paths became an individual expedition , capured in form of an experimental video documentary and a drawn logbook.

THIS IS POWER

My cyborg alter ego is travelling through space and time with a turbo drive of sampled power, spending cyber feministic theory particles.

after she read a lot by Donna, Ursula, Joanna and …
She was ready to build her own spaceship called trash-power
For the first time she leaves for new dimensions on her own.
Maybe she would even create a new wonderful world…
