4 video towers (each with 6 screens) display the process of production in films and 2 projection walls (each with 4 screens) show the effect of the production within a slideshow: pleasure and consumption. The graph of the german stock market, layered over the slideshow, functions as a timeline in the installation.
The closer the visitor steps up to a single tower the more intense the original audio from the film footage emerges.
The visual content is ordered by 8 topics (holiday, hobby, sport, beauty, eating, kitchen, home, society events) and tells a subjective history of consumption over the past 60 years. 4 historical events (moon landing, oil crisis, the fall of the wall, 9/11) interrupt the continuous economic growth and are visually embedded in the installation.
The pulse generator for consumption is money. A disco sphere projects coins and notes from different monetary eras (i.e. East/West-Germany, Euro) into the the hall, sometimes less, sometimes more.
