Bended Realities 2.012

Monday, 5th of July 2010, 8:00 am on Alexanderplatz, Berlin
directly in front of the Kaufhof.

8 (human) Robots programmed by 38317 play the State Debts in decibel (dB). Each of them in different intensity, based on a 2009 IMF chart of the arrears of important developed leading countries in percent of the given GDP (Gross Domestic Product).

Development of
Public Debt
in percent of GDP

France 82,6
Germany 84,5
Italy 120,1
Eurozone 86,3
Japan 227,0*
Great Britain 81,7
Canada 79,3
USA 93,6

* 2 x 113,5 dB due
to tech reasons

Compare: IMF Staff Position Note. June 9, 2009.
"Fiscal Implications of the Global Economic and Financial Crisis".

Hear, feel, sense and track the rise and fall of your favourite
nation, the pressure on the working class and the future of a
possible post-capitalistic world right now!

The robots produce an unpleasant bad noise each as loud
as the position of the particular state. For example:

Germany 84,5 % = 84,5 dB

Check it out! This is not "Krach der Roboter" and not "Roboter
spielen Haendels Wassermusik". Don't mishear it if you can't
hear it.

dB's Little Lexicon

IMF, the International Monetary Fund. Its primary purpose is to
ensure the stability of the international monetary system and
economic growth = capitalism. The IMF is not the motor of
capitalism, this the capital.

GDP, the Gross Domestic Product. It represents the dollar value
of all goods and services produced over a year in one country.

post-capitalistic, [phrase]: means nothing without a plan.
