Jury Rapport

SET UP FOR A HOLISTIC EXPERIMENT
Maarten Davidse & Simon Weins

This is an award for a piece, a process, a work of collaboration.
We were struck by the combination of media in this work: a union of material and conceptual mode of production.
It is a work about human existence and the world in total: recycling of water is executed.
Here by using the consumer as host and filter.
This makes the ecological process extremely
Existential as it is connected to human substance and to our, the viewers presence in this certain space.
The story is written in an amazing collective process by two artists and a consulted hypnotizer.
While experiencing the hypnotic text on water we become producers of it in the very process itself (dehydration and condensation).
