Organische Apparate / Apparatische Organe

The projects presented at the Open House embody organs and apparatuses. As fictional machines, they represent the productive similarities of a functioning body. This network is only partially based on the human physique, acting as a collection of products without coherent roots, and more or less clearly defined functions for the formation of a decentralized and unpredictable acting design.
The corridor of the Institute HyperWerk becomes a bloodline, a transport for people and ideas. It connects the apparatuses and organs, while simultaneously acting as an escape route from the crowd.

Postscriptum: Our Go-To-Tool Wikipedia translates the terms apparatus (latin apparatus) and organ (classical greek organon) with the same word: tool
