The sound sculpture locate itself in the discourse about the general social participation in technology. This is metaphorically embedded by the use of various industrial technologies and its transformation into a sound sculpture. This appropriation of technologie emerging from a consuming industrie and the appropriation of computer language, the code, is the central starting point of this work. This idea strives for a social participation of technology in society. The desire behind this, is that structural inequalities should not be carried forward. That we create a technological guild which frees itself from hegemonic relations. Technology should be here to enable a world that is able to resist its capitalist benefits and to offer the world the possibility to see it as a tool to make another advance against social segregation. Is that a utopia? But utopia has to be drawn to make it reality. osz~ is the attempt to breathe life into the objects. To give them a spirit and create a sculpture that may free itself from its past and reinvent itself, far from any capitalist thought. osz~ is a plea to enjoy the blurring boundaries between machine and organism.
