Zwei Glückskatzen spielen mit ihrem Newtonschen Wollependel. Einerseits reine Energieunterhaltung. Doch es geht auch um was! Wer trifft schubst das virtuelle Glücksrad in seine Richtung. Die finale Zahl auf dem Rad entscheidet darüber, welche der vorhandenen Installationen innerhalb der gesamten Topologie im folgenden gestartet wird.

Two cats of fortune play with their Newton’s wool cradle. A virtual wheel of fortune accelerates whenever a cat hits one of the wool balls. Which number the wheel of fortune shows at the end determines which element of the causal chain is activated next.

Meowsch ‘s Pendel is part of the Installation “The Ways Things May Go”, which is a meditation on invented causality in a networked world. Taking the first cue from Fischli/Weiss “Der Lauf der Dinge”, we build little causal processes with two or more possible outcomes: For example, a series of falling domino stones could split into two, and thus provoke a random decision in the physical world. Which end of the process is reached determines which causal process is activated next, so within the network of available elements, a dynamic topology of invented causal relations emerges. “The Ways Things May Go” is a join project between UdK Berlin (Alberto de Campo), HfK Bremen (Hannes Hölzl), RSH Düsseldorf (Julian Rohrhuber) and Angewandte Wien (Nico Kirisits, Klaus Filip), and open for future extensions.
