Pong Dress

--------------------------a project by Margarete Jahrmann--------------------------

Apparently, Valie Export's <Tap and Touch Cinema> is sur-facing as the obvious analogue pop-art-cultural-reference to Max & Marguerite Charmantes <Ludic Pong Dress>. Whilst the games at dis_play vary to some extend, the symbiotic dedication and obsession for the playground's finesse remain the same. Both experience-based-designs build on the following contention. That a timely mediatisation of a current societies desires (transgressing sexual and ludic boundaries) build on a convincing frontwall, will do the job of seducing the witnessing spectators. Both, the privileged active players and the countless inter_passive observers, will be sucked into the game. The fundamental difference homes in entirely awaited: in its contemporary variety, the game will becoming a play with nothing but the products of one's associative power. While the 'touch and feel' quality of Export's predecessor has been paved away by the 'iconographic ardour'of Charmantes LE.D.IS_PLAY. text by Jo Maier, Zurich.
