"699.987.968 BYTES"
by Katrin Herzner, Germany

In her presentation the artist offers an interesting insight in her performative way of understanding the artwork as a procedure. With great fun she combines her daily routine with a process-oriented artistic practice.

Using an audio recorder the artist accompanies her everyday life, to collect and to structure her ideas and to document her consistent reflection on her works. The result of this approach is a 699.987.968 byte radio play and a chart-like description on paper.

Using almost every single byte a cd has to offer the artist presents a pristine and philosophical process of thinking through and putting into order. Her approach is to act, take one step after the other and with great curiousity to watch what happens.

On the right side you will find a first concept of the CD. By clicking the play icon you are allowed to listen to the 72 audio snippets the artist developed for her show. Please use the handwritten title list as a detailed overview of the pieces.

Everybody welcome to listen and to
re-escort the process!

It is practically very simple: I have a space (700MB) and a tool (audio recorder), and while I continue to fill the space (sound of discussing with myself) I find the topic (times of in between) and finally the end (I won't tell you).

It took exactly 17 hours, 23 minutes and 53 seconds to make this piece of art. And you have the possibility to listen to every single second.

But let me tell you: to listen to an working artist may be exciting, funny, exhausting or genial ... but sometimes it may be just boring.
