„Duft-Tentakel“ für eine „Duftmantel“ - inspiriert von den Riechzellen, frei beweglich, beliebig füllbar, hochsensibel für Vibrationen. Was für eine Lust, sinnentleerte Werkzeuge herzustellen, wahrscheinlich provoziert und gesteigert durch den unbeschreiblichen Duft von feuchtem Hanfseil aus uralten Tagen. Vorbereitung für die Ausstellung „Internationales Klangkunstfestival Berlin 2014 listening::: multisensorial“ vom 17.09. bis 2.10. in Berlin *"Scent tentacles" for a "scenting coat" - inspired by the olfactory cells, freely movable, optinally fillable, highly sensitive to vibrations. What a pleasure to produce meaningless tools, probably provoked and intensified by the indescribable smell of the wet hemp rope from ancient days. Preparation for the exhibition “International Sound Art Festival Berlin 2014 ::: listening multisensorial” from 17.09. to 2.10. in Berlin
