"An essential principle of every game is that the rules are the same for everyone; the starting point of every game is symmetry. The end result of a game is intended to engender asymmetry by producing a winner. This asymmetry is the product of non-structural factors: individual skill or talent, chance, or accident—in other words, an 'event'." 1
Two identical and improvised wood-constructions shoot via a mechanism with rolls a rubber-ball into the other machine. The ball is shot indirectly into the chute. Both machines work with old and deranged tumble-dryer motors.
The video documents the installation at Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe during the diploma-exam 2010.
This work was granted the ZKM Förderpreis, 2010.
