Kernwasser Wunderland opens up a deserted landscape in a pregnant environment, a biotope subject to specific laws and its own ecology filled according to the intuitive logic of the unconscious and the imaginary.
The basis for the content is the great nuclear disaster in Chernobyl in april 1986. As a consequence of the great danger of radiation the whole area was declared inaccessible and was closed off with fencing and checkpoints. The radiation cannot be smelt or tasted, only a geigercounter can confirm its presence. This abandonment and brooding emptiness inspired us to reflect on nature and technology, in a fusion of sensual sound and image of both digital and natural worlds.
