blackhole-factory is an independent intermedia arts group formed by Elke Utermöhlen and Martin Slawig, working at the intersection of the performing and audio visual arts, integrating interactive technology and subversive low-tech aesthetics.

blackhole-factory creates performances and installations that explore the creative tension between information technology and the physical presence and absence of bodies in space, experimenting with methods of augmented space, remote networked spaces/performers and autonomous machine agents. Essential parts of the work deal with questions of perception and celebrate the unpredictability of the moment in improvisation, focussing on the relation between human, nature and technology.
