Making of: Vienna Weekend Thoughts 1 – We Think Therefore We Are

Dear All,

What are my plans for this mini series Vienna Weekend Thoughts?
Today, tomorrow and on Sunday, I would like to introduce you to ideas that inspired me for this project, reflect a bit on surprises on the way and give you an idea of what is planned next.

First of all, I would like to present to you Charles Leadbeater’s YouTube video “We think”.

“The Audience is taking to the stage”, “People can have their say” and “New ideas ususally come through conversation” – These sentences carry a huge fascination for me and I was wondering if that could be transferred to our field of work, new music and media art.

One and a half years ago, I set out a first plan on how we could pool ideas and use the possibilities of social media culture to get into an exchange with YOU.

And here we are now. In February our project officially started. Eight months later, our community has grown, gets involved, and talks to us. A first art work with texts from the community has been realised and our latest shelfie challenge is well on its way.

We have had very individual, funny and arty submissions that beautifully reflect the personality of the people who submitted. Have a look at our what if? community gallery on Tumblr.

Today, I would like to ask you to shower us with more of your shelfies. We would like to weave them into a music video as the next part of our artwork on identity.

Also, let us know what you think, keep talking to us, inspire us as we hope to inspire you.

Thank you for being part of this.
