„What does it feel like to operate a human marionette?“

Initially I wanted to try out, how it feels to operate a human marionette. In the video projection, I not only wanted the marionette to move its bodyparts – I wanted to give it an element of response: If you would pull the strings to hard or too fast, the marionette would react to it and pull back – trying to free itself from the strings.

On the tracks of the „Milgram Experiment“

I found the result quite aspiring, so that I wanted other people to share this experience with me. During the exhibition it became more interesting to observe the operator´s behavior. How far would someone go?
I experienced hundreds of different reactions and emotions: From empathy to aggression, from playfulness to awareness. Not only while operating the marionette, but also in lively discussions that came up afterwards.
