Performance with heavy metal band, Voodoo Mule

Franc Purg reads from a book of endangered species in Latin. The book will be printed for the performance and reflects the current number of endangered species. Each time he reads a name Voodoo Mule respond by playing a heavy metal riff.

On a screen a video animation visualises the question of appearance and disappearance.

We have no personal perception or experience of endangered and extinct species - we don't see or hear them. But we know they are disappearing everyday. In the video animation the opposite happens: we perceive something as disappeared, but the paradox is it is always there.

To experience the visual effect of disappearance, view the video in full screen and concentrate on the pink dot in the midde for 30 seconds.
