»Since the start of the 21st century, construction activity has displaced more sediment, sand and stone every year than has been done by rivers, erosion and non-human induced processes combined. That means that part of mankind has become a geological factor whose impact is irreversibly engraved into the world’s materiality. In the project Modified Grounds, this abstract space of capital-driven material displacement is turned into a resonating body that is made tangible by being performed live at strategically and contextually relevant sites. ›Modified Grounds #2 Concrete Voids‹ takes place at a very special location in Vienna: the inside of the Brigittenauer Bridge linking Kaisermühlen and Brigittenau via the Danube Island.  For this event, the audience will tread along a walkable grid below the bridge, suspended between the surface of the water and the road. The starting point is the bridge arch on the Handeskai. The sound installation then ends on the bridge arch on the Danube Island, which is Vienna’s biggest man-made structure, with the work being performed by 10 percussionists located all along the route.« (Katrin Honek, Judith Unterpertinger)
