Caro and Mike did a live performance with tape recorder, voice and sound effects: An audio visual work in progress about isolation and memory of the human body & spirit in the context of empty, abandoned spaces and places. They used the setting of a former Russian military base in the town of W├╝nsdorf to re-tell their story of ghosts that reappear in the form of voices, images and sounds. Kind of spooky!
