Throughout a dozen of short performance pieces I enter a battle of 'me and the machine'. I use the Finder function Cover Flow to flip through 370 screenshots, which I made in order to memorize the vanished plane MH370. I wipe across the touch pad as fast as possible. Two recording devices witness the action: the screen recording acts on behalf of the machines whereas a life camera captures the part of the human body. Quite contrary to the aim of finding the plane and thus deleting 'Nothing' my action deletes what I considered as valuable information. My fight of men and machines shall produce 'Nothing'.
The performance took place during Direct Action da*14 as part of The Month of Performance, Institut für Alles Mögliche, Abteilung für Alles Andere, Berlin, May 2014, curated by Stefan Riebel
