Garage Tanz

Garage is a space that offers possibilities to research, rehearse, create, produce and present work in the fields of dance and performing arts. It invites people to go outside of traditional dance districts in Berlin looking for proximity to other fields such as visual arts, film and sound production.

We encourage cross linked structures, diversity, reflection, exchange and collaboration. Garage is a place where practitioners, including performers, dancers, choreographers, lighting sound and stage designers, dramatists and visual artists can commit to looking for new ways of collaborating and creating.

Hand Tool Interface

Fabian Reimann
Die Interfaces, beipielesweise in diesem Moment, sind eine Tastatur, eine Computermouse oder ein Touchscreen. Bei genauerer Betrachtung können die meisten Nutzer kaum sagen, was damit gemacht wird. Und eben bei genauerer Betrachtung habe ich mich gefragt, wo und wie wir mit Interfaces umgehen, nur diese nicht so benennen würden.
Diese Frage stellte ich mir bei der Arbeit an dem Buch “Another Earth Catalog”, nachdem im Whole Earth Catalog “access to tools” der Untertitel war. Also genau genommen stellte ich mir die Frage, was schafft mir den Zugang zu einem Werkzeug? Zwischen der Arbeit ausführenden Hand und dem Werkzeug selbst befindet sich ein Gegenstand, der sowohl für die Form der Hand als der des Werkzeugs angefertigt ist. Als solche Dinge habe ich die Reihe “Hand Tool Interface” in der Art einer ethnologischen Sammlung
http://www.fabianreimann.de/Hand-Tool-Interface.185.0.html

»Hand Tool Interface« is a group of sculptures, made in Kontext of the exhibition “Another Earth”. Working about the »Whole Earth Catalog« this phrase frequently Pops up. Reflecting this Subtitel of the catalog, I took ›access to tools‹ literally, thinking about the actual access to a tool which is provided by some thing formed for the human hand as well as for the tool. Likewise I chose to work over some tool handles and present them like in an ethnological or prehistorical exhibition.

TOOLS a handjob

„Every time when an organ – or a function – frees itself from an old obligation, it invents something new. When the paw or hand is freed from the function of support of walking, it changes; it becomes the grasping organ and, finally reforms as a tool“ (Michel Serres).
