In a laboratory and experimental setting, objects will be collected that are either products of the effects of lightning or electrically charged themselves – ranging from the historical electrostatic generator, fulgurites and tesla coils to contemporary artworks.
The highly charged collection of items will diffuse over the course of the event – the exhibition objects will be spread and scattered across the space of AIL. The different daily constellations will offer a new way of looking at the material. Additional discursive formats will expand the field of research and explore the phenomenon of electrostatic discharge in other practices and areas of expertise.
