The Trivial Pursuit of Happiness - Self-Experiment No 3 / Living-Video
Multimedia-Performance, video-documentation: 12 Min. 2004/2005, English
I serve as a test-person who is placed at the mercy of a video-projection and a shower of sound. My acting is absolutely defined by the pictures and a voice that I have to obey to.
The projection makes inner struggles and emotional situations visible. I interact with pictures and sound, move in the defined borders and give answers to the questions. I obey but nevertheless I fail. The ambition of instant happiness is aimed too high. In the end my two "partners" called fear and loneliness sing together with me a "lalala-happiness-song" finished by claiming the love of the audience.
