Nature is all about cultivation: creating and alternating circumstances to survive. Man-made visions, habits, philosophies and technologies are in themselves recursive towards a still present human nature - yet also manipulate this natural bond simultaneously.

theRehearsal detects the human conditions of "an urge to understand" and "a will for making sense" as a constant processing that drives the development of cultural artefacts and translations. - Translations with that mankind seeks to bridge the gap between an individual selfawareness and a global, shared ecology.

theRehearsal seeks the human face within this processing and celebrates all man-made cultural in(ter)ventions/translations/communications as part of the one and only perpetual creation and protection system: nature as a whole.

SEBASTIAN KLEMM


"Communication is important. It is exactly the autopoietic exchange that links and protects us and our social environment."
"Communication is misleading. Every sense is being transformed in the mind of the other. There is no certainty with anything."
"Interpretation of appearances and information is all that we have."
"Information is not manifest. It is always just a draft. A claim. It shall always be in flux - overwritten and forgotten."
"Information is manipulative. A constant exchange of me and the other. Build upon trust."
"Intuition and Process work for us. Without words."
