The media installation consists of the screening of the film Deserts & Backbones and the Avid Mixing Lab, in which the audio and video material is available to everyone for free mixing.

The documentary Deserts & Backbones deals with the question of whether there is a will beyond the human, rational will. The focus of the Avid Mixing Lab is the dramaturgical context that is created through the screening of ‘finished’ products on an editing system and is implemented directly in the live mix.

Blurring lights creating fluid anquors in a world of fast pace and rigid norms … Stones and grains of sand turning into vast oceans of water … filling empty glasses … smelling of fragrant sensuality – in a world having lost its warm smell …
