Net artist WOLF KAHLEN is dissolving pixel by pixel, user by user in the net. On a first page. On the second you see and hear your personal pixel, the one, you activated to disappear, solely on the empty page. And on the third page you see all the 'lost' pixels arriving back and shaping a new WOLF KAHLEN. Look, hear and have the triptych printed out, signed and numbered, the way you, only you see the process taking shape, nobody else has seen this moment of the RITUAL DEATH.
An exiting piece and a very conceptual one, media concerned and at the same time sensual.
The RUINE DER KUENSTE BERLIN presents it to collectors as a present, which WOLF KAHLEN gave them at his 60th birthday. The URL for the piece is www.wolf-kahlen.de
