RADICAL DISRUPTION OF A GYROSCOPIC DEVICE WITH HETERODYNE MUTATION.
Theories of relativity of disasters and of deviations manifest in this gyroscope are to produce an open uninhibited approach to disasters that have "to be overcome". The visitor – 'a recipient' in the interplay of the elements: as a victim no longer compelled to protect his or her personal security and as a spectator freed from the choice of intervention towards settling the experience of a catastrophe. The bunker between "EXPERIENCE" and "ORDEAL" … – delimiting the implications and the reality of a catastrophe more closely; lab for observing temporary deviations of gyroscopic mutation as basis for a mathematical formula of behaviour.

THE INSTALLATION AS THE INDIVIDUALS EXPOSITION IN A CYCLE OF SEARCH FOR CATASTROPHE FROM VIRTUAL TO BANAL REALITY

STEP 1: A BUNKER IS A BUNKER IS NO PROP IS NO "ERLEBNIS"
Trapped between adventure-happy readiness for ERLEBNIS and concreted bunker mentality

STEP 2: THE WAITING ROOM
The Event, the victim, the observation – Premonitions of reality and interlacing of those three components as steps towards a forthcoming catastrophe

STEP 3: AN ORDEAL OF A GYROSCOPIC DEVICE WITH HETERODYNE MUTATION
The symmetrical gyroscope in the center of the individuals anxiety for locating disasters and their reality. A vexing play for eyes, ears and tactile senses is at the very heart of "ERLEBNIS" catastrophe. The installation serves through the ordeal of gravity as an experimental instrument to investigate a mathematical formula of behaviourism.
