A Matter Theater | Wonder

Thu, Oct 16, 2014 with Molly Nesbit, Tomás Saraceno and guests

Wonder
From ducks in a pond to spiders in a web or parrots in Puerto Rico: a telephone call with Hans-Ulrich Obrist, wildlife documentaries, memoires of check points, background noises, and associations. A trip through the possibilities of aesthetic perception and knowledge. Or did you know that spiders can travel up to 700 km by way of the wind? An evening full of miracles, featuring Molly Nesbit (00:00–13:00), Tomás Saraceno (13:00- 27:30), the parrot Alex (28:00–43:40), Hans-Ulrich Obrist (43:50–57:00), and numerous spider sounds (56:56–01:03:30).
