I Want to Have the Full Experience

09.02, 07:00 pm

I Want to Have the Full Experience is an interactive performance about curiosity, devotion, and longing to know the truth. Using computer programs and a Playtronica controller, the artist turns each piece of clay into a musical instrument. Every touch on the clay triggers a sound, but before it’s triggered, the exact pitch is unknown. It reflects the procedure of exploring the world, you can estimate, but never predict what will happen next. The clay as a material shows tremendous flexibility which transcends the normality, contrasting with its childish stereotype.
