Inspired by J.G. Ballard's 1973 novel Crash, the bony labyrinth explores an ambiguous relationship between a Citroen C4 Picasso and the fictive character Dr. Logan. Situated in a film-set, camera and microphones follow as practical satellites the encounters between different bodies of performer, car, objects and materials. While the camera is framing and highlighting, the sensitive microphones intensify sounds of various materialities, which are processed live by sound-artist I.Ruuu. Influences of ASMR (a social-media-phenomena) are applied on the sounds and create an amplified audio-haptic experience. In this setting the businessman Dr. Logan moves constantly in a slow-down hyper sensitive post accident state, talking about the possible consequences of a crash. From reporting about amnesia, surgery and organ-transplantation he can get carried away into extremely passionate anatomy-lectures. While unpacking the car he reveals different objects and materials such as sport-equipment and oversized anatomical models, which give fragmented hints to his dubious profession. Dr. Logan is curating and creating connections between the materials while arranging them on top of the car, which turns into a temporary exhibition display.
