Stefanie Sixt: DYSCRHONIA V

Ist Zeit Geld? Oder ist Zeit nicht einfach nur Zeit? Unsere Wahrnehmung der Zeit scheint jedenfalls eine getriebene, eine gestörte, eine mehr und mehr ungesunde zu sein.

Statt in der Gegenwart den Lauf der Dinge wahrzunehmen, sind wir von anstehenden Terminen gehetzt, trotzdem wird jede Sekunde genutzt, um online zu sein. Special offer – only until tomorrow! Es offenbart sich ein Lifestylemix aus Raffgier und Verschwendungssucht, eine physische Präsenz ist hierbei immer seltener von Nöten.

Und doch „haben“ wir immer weniger Zeit!

Seit Beginn der Menschheit ist die Überwindung der Zeit, die Unsterblichkeit das Ziel. Maschinelle Ersatzteile für Körper sind bereits Realität und der Upload des Bewusstseins ist Bestandteil aktueller Forschung.

In unserer digitalisierten Gesellschaft geht lediglich der Verlust verloren, nicht aber Information, die sich in binäre Codes umwandeln lässt. Die Überwindung der Zeit, ohne sie erfüllend ausgelebt zu haben, scheint zu beginnen.

An dieser Schnittstelle soziokultureller bzw. philosophischer Beobachtungen setzt Stefanie Sixts und Markus Mehrs künstlerische Arbeit an.
