Hillerbrand + Magsamen, Devices for Dwelling, 2018

Husband and wife artist duo style their work as Suburban Fluxus. Ordinary household goods and electric or electronic devices are humerously re-engineered to help all of us to navigate and survive in a polarized world that creates more lonely people than ever despite a zillion social apps.

At the silos they occupy 4 silos , in one there is a perpetually turning satellite with its antennas stretched out. The other silos are filled with household goods including a number of trashcans from which white kitchen trash bags appear blown up by hidden fans at irregular intervals.

The147 Integrated Devices are a comprehensive survival kit.
