Sowing the Seeds

SCHALOM

SOWING THE SEEDS – Schalom/Shalom
Installation by Divjak/Weishäupl (Grass area, Vienna Heldenplatz)

On March 15, 1938 a crowd gathered on Heldenplatz cheered for the “Führer” and celebrated the so-called “Anschluss” (annexation) to the German Reich.

Seventy-five years later, in March 2013, grass will be sown on the field on which the masses shouted with enthusiasm in 1938. Slowly, the word “Shalom” is gradually becoming legible. Peace as a wish and a path for all people. “Shalom” as a delicate, growing symbol that must be taken care of.

Diffusing Molecules #2

Scent Design for the Museum of Natural History

Scent design for the travelling exhibition KINGDOM OF SALT / DAS WEISSE GOLD DER KELTEN [Clients: Museum of Natural History, Vienna / Museumspartner, Innsbruck]

Focusing on the newest interdisciplinary research, the exhibition shows the town of Hallstatt, located in the Austrian Alps, as a “cradle of Europe’s industrialisation”: a progression of settlement and mining over 7000 years.

Visitors can explore the displays in the shape of huge „salt blocks“, i.e atmospheric rooms, which provide ambient sounds, video projections, multimedia shows, computer animations – and historical on location-smellscapes.

For this show I´m providing –  in cooperation with German scent specialist Elke Kies from MagicBox – the Museum of Natural History (Vienna) with expertise, conceptual development and the exclusive creation of unique olfactory experiences: from the neolithic age up to 350 BC, from „untouched nature“ to the smell of „the global village“.

Bee Pop – Prologue

BEE-POP-A-LULA!

We have been fascinated by bees forever. But what did we really know about them? Ok, there’s the stuff with the birds and the bees, we all love the yummy syrup known as honey and fear the bee’s sting. (Since we have all made first-hand acquaintance with it back then, barefoot in childhood days.)

It was late autumn 2011 when we first came up with the idea of connecting more closely with the life of the honey bee. We wanted to do some research, collect sounds on location in and around the hives. The aim was to produce an entire album based on field recordings. — mehr —
