Station: [54] Dane Mitchell - Post hoc, 2019 / 2020

  • Skulpturenpark Köln

Dane Mitchell is interested in things that no longer exist. His tree-like radio masts transmit lists compiled by the artist of lost and extinct entities. The lists are enumerated by an electronic voice and are transmitted by two antennae hidden in artificial trees, normally employed to conceal telecommunications infrastructure. Post hoc highlights the implications associated with loss and extinction.

Select wifi-network ‘posthoc’ and download posthoc.co to find Mitchell’s lists of lost things.
