The work uses the constant pressure of inovation, which todays internet-based population is exposed to, as an engine for generating analog physical energy. Algorithms and movement behaviours extracted from the world wide web are translated into a voluminous dance approach. In collaboration with musician Olga Nosova, while searching for physical experience in medial disembodiment, Julian Weber uncovers neurotic mechanisms of digital consumption, dissecting and translating them into a performative reality. This reality manifests in a gloomy black and white playground and addresses questions around the distinction between the virtual and non-virtual world - the internet does not exist.
