A play on artworks, works in process and working things out by doing – together.  Through negotiation, juxtaposition, and re-contextualization, various works and non-works will be woven into an interface for the audience, built through interactive, textual and performative processes.

The project is based on a collective process initiated by Sam Bunn and Davide Bevilacqua and hosted by Raumschiff the week before the opening of Ars Electronica.

A working group of “contributors” was formed, each one of whom was asked to make something available to the group that they had produced and abandoned, or that was not yet concluded. The materials were allowed to be physically or conceptually manipulated and twisted, their hidden potential revealed through a collective activity of action-reaction, mediation and re-mediation. During the set-up process the exhibition room becomes a place of encounter and exchange, an interface where conceptual loops, new or old media art projects, interacting sculptures, non- or a-technological projects, finished or unfinished paintings, can be played with.

The collaborative display exhibited turns non-functional works into functional un-works, revealing how art works between artworks.
