Using litter and disposables, Albert Mayr alias Jonny Hawaii creates, in his installation-like work situations – a mix of “office, stage, garden, nature and garbage dump” (Albert Mayr) – interactive performance-sculptures, which he then uses as interfaces for his electronic and electroacoustic music. His Orchester – as an open system of performative possibilities – is a site for the interplay of different sculptures, installations and musicians. Mayr confronts his roots in dada with the idea of networking as a communication model for political activists and organizational structures.
