Untitled (Piece for Hellerau) is a machine that invites the spectator to take a stance, to express a desire. It constitutes a materialization and a discussion of the concepts that gave rise to the place for which it was conceived (a building sheltering an old Soviet military installation in the Hellerau district in Dresden). The structure can be installed wherever the function corresponds to one or more points of the content that are put forward for discussion by the piece. The work is only considered entire to the extent that it is used by the spectator.
