blackhole-factory is an independent intermedia arts group working at the intersection of the performing and audio visual arts, integrating interactive technology and subversive low-tech aesthetics. Founding members are Elke Utermöhlen und Martin Slawig.
blackhole-factory creates performances and installations utilizing the creative tension between information technology and the physical presence/ absence of bodies in space, experimenting with methods of augmented space, networked performaces and installations and autonomous systems of remote networked machine agents.
Their performances explore the development of open spaces during improvisations that celebrate the unpredictability of the moment. Many of their projects feature found materials, field recordings, interviews, low tech electronics, custom software, sensors and custom interfaces. In their investigative and site specific arts projects the group is interested in aspects of everyday life and identity, focussing on urban space and ethnologic/ anthropologic questions.
