Being Happy/ AstroTV

2012

Video | Sound | Performance

Here, you can see two hands which perform shamanistic acts. They throw around the little bones of animals and are handling with smoking coffee powder. The sound consists of extracts from a german television format called 'Astro-TV', where you can get advise from astrologists and clairvoyants, who give this seemingly randomly chosen advise in an often rude way. At the end of the video, you hear one of the callers say „I want to be happy“. I wanted to play with the obvious absurdity of this formats, where advice is given often by pure chance.
