Bronze wrapped bubble
Two bronze castings each 45 × 45 × 50cm, two-channel audio, 5:08min, loop
Bronze wrapped bubble consists of two castings and a sound piece. Asked for a commission by my father Hans to make a death mask of him, ‘while I am still looking good’, I commissioned a death mask from him as well for myself. Each produced head form got wrapped in bubble foil and casted in bronze while wrapped, making each person indistinguishable one another. A sound composition recorded by Hans and Johannes in a shower booth serves as connection between the two castings.
