»We know nothing about a body until we know what it can do, in other words, what its affects are, how they can or cannot enter into composition with other affects, with the affects of another body, to destroy that body or to be destroyed by it, to exchange actions and passions with it or to join with in composing a more powerful body.« – Gilles Deleuze Felix Guattari in Mille Plateaux

With their new work »SPIN,« visual artist Lucas Gutierrez and musician Robert Lippok conduct interdisciplinary research on the borders of nature, technology, and time.

The terms »physis / φύσις« (nature) and »téchne / τέχνη« (art and craft), as used by Aristotle in his treatise, Physics, became a point for the development of this audiovisual installation: »The critical distinction between art and nature concerns their different efficient causes: nature is its own source of motion, whereas téchne always requires a source of motion outside itself.«

In their audiovisual sculpture, Gutierrez and Lippok represent the two principles as two primeval ring-shaped bodies that comprise a mechanism that layers the sounds of everyday life. Within its rings, »SPIN« becomes a listening space where sounds of nature and civilisation meet, and chaos, silence, wilderness, evolution, and disaster are in constant motion.
