BLACK LODGE EXPERIENCE
2019

"300 sq m of Lynchian fever dreams to explore, peopled by surreal characters from the world of Twin Peaks and beyond to interact with. The Black Lodge Experience brings the fears and desires of the darkest corners of David Lynch's imagination to life and puts its own perverse twist on them. Smell, taste, touch; hum, whisper and scream."

An immersive horror experience about liminality and disintegration.

LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW
2017 - 2019

"With the world in an alarming state, glaciers melting, waters rising, floods coming on, species dying, corals bleaching, our survival brains are in overdrive. Climate Corporations can offer relief. We care. Together we will step out of surviving and into living. So much has happened that can't be undone. So much will happen that is inevitable now. Surviving means contributing. 
CLAIM CLIMATE CHANGE."

A performance installation about anthropocentric anxieties and coping mechanisms.

THE SHELLS /
AUSFLUG NACH NEU-FRIEDENWALD

2014 - 2015

"It is summer in Neu-Friedenwald and the annual tourist season is about to begin. The merry preparations are disturbed by the sudden death of the town's golden girl Cecilia. Local authorities are quick to declare it "a tragic accident". Once the initial shock fades, however, the talking starts. The young woman's death has torn a gaping wound into the fabric of the community, and cracks in the suburban paradise's veneer are beginning to show."

A performance installation about the Beautiful Dead Girl and complicity.

Inspired by David Lynch's Twin Peaks and Fire Walk With Me.
