The Herculeslab is an audiovisual lab for Ph.D. students at KASK & Conservatorium. It originated from the research project 'Ailab' and was supported financially by the Hercules Fund. In addition to a lending service that includes cameras and microphones, there is also a media archive, a montage cell and a 5.1 mixing studio. The lab wants to stimulate practical research into making and experiencing sound in an audiovisual environment. Individual research projects can be worked on but residences and workshops are also organised. The lab is also accessible to KASK & Conservatory students, candidate-laureates at the HISK and EPAS.
The Visitor, 2014
Three Spanish men in the desert. Marc, Ubay, Roger. They are on a quest. They fuze with their environment. They become more desert-like. They talk about movies they've seen, the movies are their only remaining connection to the civilized world. Their language is a ruin. They avoid important questions. They walk, do a ritual, sit by the campfire, play a game of football, and (play-)fight. To continue their trip. We learn to know Ubay, Marc and Roger. Ubay is the foolish one, Marc the realistic one, Roger the poetic one. They keep on walking. We found them as spectators, we've been shortly part of their trip and from now on we share their questions.
