MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF YEARS: biomedial installation (automatic record player, record, pedestal, water bowl, algae, car batterie, gold-plated frame) (2014) A record player pivots under the weight of a waterglass with algaes. The recording of a lithany sung by a choire is played on half speed and the refrain „MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF YEARS“ is repeated mantra-like. The song is a creation tale about the 1,5 billion years when algaes were the most developed life form and created the conditions for all further development of life. The plainly placed record player, the solemn and eerie choire and the sober auromatism of the technical device mingle fact and fiction into an inseparable plot.
