Mechanic Entities explore nature as their habitat. An observation of the performative behavior of mechanic devices in a surrounding called nature (or better: the opposite of their usual habitat). Offer them a stage for spiritual rituals. What happens when mechanic entities leave their normal habitat and are exposed to nature? What happens when they find themselves in places where humans celebrated their rituals before? How can these mechanic entities look like? How do they behave? Are they able to adapt?


As one inspirational image I found a painting from [Simon Stålenhag]:

Step1: Last week I went to a junkyard to get materials that I would like to use for this project including all kinds of "moving devices" like e.g. ventilators from PC's:

Step2: Dismantled the fan and connected it to a 9Volt battery. Tried to regulate the speed with a potentiometer.



During the last day of our excursion to Sauen I went to the woods and found a device attached to a tree:
