In their performance, the artists used directed speakers and misapplied household electronics to sound out the depths of an undisclosed space set deep under the city of Vienna.
Production: Ljudmila, Art and Science Laboratory & Projekt Atol Institute, with support from the Ministry of Culture and City of Ljubljana – Department for Culture.

His interdisciplinary work practice moves fluidly between performance, sound art, media art and architecture.
