MARSlab

installation / performance
2012

A large box is set up in an exterior space for a live performance. A terrarium closed off from the outside. In the course of time Karl Van Welden generates an ash storm by using fans and ash, his surroundings become increasingly hazy and dusty. MARSlab is the start of a research into catastrophes. It is an experiment regarding the momentum before, during and after a natural disaster. An investigation into its aesthetics.
