The Keys of Vienna
07 April 2006
 
Good morning Vienna!

The sound of the midnight helicopter operation is still here. Thank you Intima Virtual Base! http://www.intima.org (you're welcome, darling!)

When Igor asked me two weeks ago "What picture do you want to have?" I answered "Tits." The fast guy made them in two seconds. They look like this:



When I woke up yesterday morning I took a look through the window across the street. On the Volkstheater under the red star I saw what was not there on the day before. It looked like this:







I was glad because of that fluttering tit in the fresh sunshine. I had and I still have the feeling that this was a good start of my being here and it's not true I was sad because there are not two tits on one flag.

What did König Rudolf I. think about that when he conquered Vienna in the year 1278?

We walked in the cold air,
Freezing breath on a window pane,
Lying and waiting,
A man in the dark in a picture frame,
So mystic and soulful,
A voice reaching out in a piercing cry,
It stays with you until,
The feeling is gone,
Only you and I,
It means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh Vienna.

The music is weaving,
Hunting notes, pizzicato strings,
The rhythm is calling,
Alone in the night as the daylight brings,
A cool empty silence,
The warmth of your hand and a cold grey sky,
It fades to the distance,
The image is gone,
Only you and I,
It means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh Vienna.

This means nothing to me,
This means nothing to me,
Oh Vienna.

The basic idea of the project "The Keys of Vienna" is simple: life is composed of a series of sequences that are not more or less important themselves but are this way defined through our view, affinity, our (in)comprehension … Therefore it appears "important" to me to focus and coordinate my desire to see everything the same way: as the elephant in the ant or garbage in gold also the Studio in Vienna and Vienna in the Studio. LOVE IS IN THE AIR = PROTOCOL IS ALL.

A – Vienna as a Studio:

· I intend to lay a virtual plan over the Vienna town map that will coincidentally determine the alighting stations of my visits in the large city "Studio". At each station I will look for answers to the question: What does here represent Vienna to me?
The question will remain the same in different surroundings every day. The principle of answering: the answer needs to be expressed in the form of a basic unit (it is either an object that can be brought to the Studio, a thought expressed in one sentence or a digital portrait of a primordial element, being, food, event etc.).

In exchange for the received answer, I will mark the place of the answer with a turquoise "key" & an "orange". It will be possible to take the fruit but not the key. As the days will go by, equally designed keys will appear on different locations in Vienna.

The place of the answer will be documented before and after the answer was given.

B – Vienna in the Studio:

· Digital part:
Formation of an Internet diary with Vienna fly stations presenting an audio-visual documentation of places with answers and information on the time and the place of the answer. Raw material will be digitally modified here and there, but in a very subtle way so that the borders of transition won't be evident but still have sense and therefore will be leading astray (the record of the actual event presented in the sepia toning technique etc.).

Analogue part:
Set-up of the floor map entirely made of discovered objects, expressed thoughts, printed diary portraits and drawings from the days of my staying in Vienna. The installation include a new media presentation (PC, camera, video etc.). The analogue part will be realised on the yellow floor in the Studio at Quartier 21.
