Watch as Pia Van Gelder uses Ginseng and Tofu to make an electric circuit for Liquid Architecture


Pia Van Gelder amplifies an electronic circuit being built in real time incorporating ginseng and tofu. She has said this performance is NOT relaxing. She has described it as ‘very Kittlerian’.

Her art and interdisciplinary research explores theosophy, technology, science, counter-culture histories, DIY pedagogy, AV mysticism and what she calls ‘machinic affinity’ – feelings of closeness to a machine.
