… In April 2020, hardly anyone wanted to know or could have known that “a glass broke in China”* and that a virus embarked on its journey in a “natural” way (bat-wing-esque). Like thoughts.
Sensitive people feel tremors and precautiously start stockpiling vital necessities, others follow their perception – in a state of intense excitement – to a different direction. On a bus trip from Graz to Gleisdorf, for instance. Angelika Thon shows the results of her personal endeavor to translate internal and external shakes and tremors.
… The hand acts as a seismograph and transmits movements, e.g. those of a moving bus, via a pen on paper.
… A chalk line (a masonry tool for marking walls) is used as a medium to set spaces into vibration.

*”I even feel guilty when a glass breaks somewhere in China.” From: NORMALSATZ Heinz Emigholz, USA / D 1978-81, 105 min
