My current research deals with the feeling of social and physical spaces that are defined by alerts and alarms.

In a playful reuse of the classic ▷Which Disney character are you?◁ face filter, I question the fears evoked by alarm sounds by identifying myself with these sounds.

A similar situation arises in the Live Sound Performance I created for and showed at the Snippet Live-Feature Festival in Basel. This work is a trial of experiencing being an alarm in front of an audience. I composed the auditive environment of a computer game that would let me choose between different types of alarms being Avatars. While being the Avatar I play with having the ability to manipulate other peoples fears to start a discussion about our own responsibilities in a society with security measures, especially to create awareness of what it means to be living in a safe state and what privileges as such entails.
