This work explores the interior of the individual, and through collective interaction, dissolves it. Participants occupying the space are scanned to reveal layers of a hybrid human radiological image. As these build up, more of the human volume is revealed. At the same time, the number and proximity of individuals creates distortionary fields – blending this form into a stellar constellation. The affects of these scans and fields accelerate and expand over time until the constellation collapses into self-oblivion and the cycle begins anew.

Please note: Limited capacity, registration required – in addition to a valid ticket, you need a (free) ticket reservation for the respective event in advance. Reservations for Deep Space 8K events must be scanned on-site no later than 15min before the programme starts.
