World Wide Hole at TAT Berlin In 2008 we would like to open a hole between the art space TAT in Berlin and other locations in Europe. This Installation would create the possibility of collaborating with other art spaces in Europe. During the hole opening it would be possible to organize concerts, performances and other events using the holes as a vector of communication between publics in the different spaces.

world wide hole connecting the whole wide world Imagine being able to dig a tunnel through the earth, imagine looking down into this hole you’ve just dug and being able to see someone at the other side. Imagine being able to talk to this person, and to any other person where ever you dig a tunnel! World Wide Hole makes this possible! The goal of world wide hole is to open virtual holes all over the world. Each of these virtual holes would be able to connect to any other hole. Imagine a world where there would be holes everywhere, walking in the park in new york city, you stumble upon a hole, and find yourself face to face with a poodle and its owner in Paris, France. Sitting waiting for your metro in Tokyo, you look down and talk to someone waiting for their metro in Sydney, Australia! The possibilities are endless. World Wide hole consists of 2 computers connected with webcams through the internet. The technical elements are hidden under a pile of earth so that we can imagine the live video sttream as a “hole� in the ground. When 2 holes are connected it is possible to see and talk to people on the other side of the hole. For more information please visit:
