A small group of young children is playing in a garden. It is not really clear, where we are. What appears to be a place somewhere in China becomes a restaurant with luscious garden at second sight. A virtually perfect copy, constructed by architects from China with materials imported from the province Sichuan. It is a popular meeting place for Austro-Chinese residents and tourists to experience an authentic piece of China abroad.

Shannon Novak’s work focuses on the idea that everything is music whether a chair, a building, or your next cup of tea, and interprets this musicality using his own language of animated geometric forms and instrumental sounds. In Novak’s work “Transcription 29.591371,106.55365”, he interprets the musicality of a specific location within Chongqing by referring to its musical history, a virtual art work the audience can reveal using a mobile device with a free app.

Window as open to the world is the object of contemplation and reflection. The window is situated between two spaces inside and outside, which cuts at the same time to connect these two areas. View outside the window from the inside of the house, has led us to reconsider what we know see from inside ourselves and that we agree to let our universe. Internalizing the externality and externalization of the inner two existential moments that make up a large part of the experience.

Production hands is a reflection on my visits to manufacturing facilities in China in 2008. I identified the distinct ability to withstand repetitive labour within the structure of the Fordist division of labour.
