These old premises of “Dresdner Herrenmode”, in former times a well known and well established fabric production in East Germany, now closed their doors. I was allowed to have a final look into this universe of once stirring people and machines. What I found was history of around 50 years – now silent. Packed, damaged or dismantled all these interesting things and “witnesses” waited for their end.
This is a really interesting installation by Julius von Bismarck, seen at Ars Electronica 2012 in Linz/Austria. These lamps move asynchronously, however at one time they are aligned and swing synchronously – the chaos seems to be overcome. But just a moment after it the “chaos” starts again.
