8 Probes of Substanzraum
premonitions of substanzraum

8 Probes Of Substanzraum is a performative piece in two parts: 'collecting' and 'giving'. Collected in a windy night at the beach of Den Haag, I brought 8 probes of beach, ocean and atmosphere as presents to my colleagues at the ArtScience Interfaculty (Royal Conservatory/Royal Academy of Art The Hague). This work is the first of many, evolving out of my project Going To The Beach As Artistic Research Practice, which eventually lead to my spatial notion of Substanzraum.
