A performative and audiovisual experimental film: currents of electricity and its production were analyzed and introduced into a human host via electrodes. The resulting impulses and physical motions were recorded in the powerplant Wien Simmering. The visual material was then edited and mixed with Max Bense's text "technical existence" (written in 1949), where the philosopher Bense adresses ethical question concerning mankinds uneasy relationship with machines and technology.
Impulse was awarded with the jury's price at Vienna Independent Shorts 2013 – Night of the Light Competition.
