Franziska Windisch explores the entanglement of trace, sound, and movement in her work "walk with a wire" (2018). She initiates the sound production from the material of a cassette's magnetic tape, which she scans by hand in a loop. The touch of the fingers and the surroundings leave traces on the empty magnetic tape, which produce different noises when played back afterwards. Both the text as well as the concept of the performance were created at a historical excavation site in Greece. The confrontation with the remnants of an ancient urban space resulted in a reflection on temporality.
