“Ex Undis, Cognitio” makes manifest the radio signals constantly permeating our bodies. Through both pre-recorded and live captured radio signals, set against synthesised music, the piece asks questions about time: when did these signals emanate? How far have they traveled? Our bodies therefor contain multiple times: each signal is a time capsule from the moment it was generated, travelling at light speed through our bodies. Our bodies as antenna, our bodies as interceptors of data and time, shifting constantly with the waves.

The Museum of No Art has no location. It can be seen flowing on the surface of a lake or reflecting the sun on a distant hill. It is an open structure. Large halls with transparent ceilings reveal far-off glances into the future and the past. Hidden corners and small chambers submerge into the allure of childhood memories. Strange sounds can be heard while wandering through the museums garden. It is an ever-changing exhibition of the subconsciousness, filled with transcendent pictures and sculptures of metaphysical beauty. The Museum of No Art never closes and never opens. The visiting hours expand beyond the concept of time and space
