The largest Atlantic hurricane recorded to date hit New York City in the morning hours of October 29th 2012. Hurricane Sandy was a storm-system with a diameter of 1800 km and took the lives of at least 233 people in eight countries. The assessed damage has been estimated to roughly $68 billion. The hurricane sparked a widespread political debate in the US regarding climate change and the hurricane's relation to global warming.
The audio-footage for this sound art-work was captured from the hd-cameras's microphones mounted on top of the Statue of Liberty and recorded in three parts starting 12.42 pm and ended at 17.54 pm on October 29th, 2012. It has since then been completed into the soundart-work "anthropocene is just another word for nothing left to lose".
The sheer brutality of the storm's impact creates strong overmodulations and distortions and pushes the microphones to its technical limits. The incomparability of this sound (incomparable in the sense of being the largest storm system recorded in meteorological history) is in my opinion
directly interlinked with the technical limits of our civilization in general. It displays certain powerlessness counteracting the current visions of technological omnipotence dominating the early Anthropocene.

Curated by Jurgen Ostarhild
Freely adapted from Marcus Steinweg's philosophy of
precipitancy, Samples (Überstürztes Hängen*) proves
the possibility of a concurrence of precision and excess.
The works haven't emerged from unique technical skills
but from sampling found photos, found video footage,
motorbike parts and computer code and are solely
chosen by the artists. Not having seen one of the
artworks previous to the exhibition, Jurgen Ostarhild
intentionally exposes himself to a loss of control thus
during the process of hanging, the communication
between the artists, the speculative he experiences as
outsider who is only documenting, he creates a
precision that demands art instead of aesthetics.
open : Sat November 22nd, 2014 (one day only)
Samples (Überstürztes Hängen) erprobt frei nach
Marcus Steinwegs Philosophie der Überstürzung die
Möglichkeit einer Gleichzeitigkeit von Präzision und
Exzess. Die Arbeiten gehen auf keine einzigartigen
handwerklichen Fähigkeiten zurück, vielmehr sind sie
aus gefundenen Fotografien , found video footage,
Motoradteilen und Computercode zusammengesamplet
und wurden allein von den KünstlerInnen ausgewählt.
Indem er keine der Arbeiten vor Beginn der Ausstellung
gesehen hat, setzt sich Jurgen Ostarhild gezielt einem
Kontrollverlust aus und erzeugt im Prozess des
Hängens, der Kommunikation der KünstlerInnen
untereinander, dem Spekulativen, den er als
Aussenstehender erlebt und dokumentiert, eine
Präzision, die Kunst statt Ästhetik einfordert.
offen : Sa 22.November, 2014 (Nur an diesem Tag)
