I try to be there
interactive installation, 2014

Interactive globe, that tells a story each time one is spinning it.
The stories were collected from two long time travellers that conquered the world by bike. Of loneliness, freedom and restlessness.

The stories are triggered through a manipulated computer mouse, fixed on the turning angle of the globe and a processing script.

G'schicht'n vom Leben und Ableben
web portal, 2013

The digital memorial is a sort of youtube-like website in memory of my father. I captured my fathers personality by recording stories told by friends and family remembering him.
The content is linked by keywords to each other and the listener can navigate through it in a linear or an assosiative way. The content is accecible only for people succeding the password request.
'G'schicht'n von Leben und Ableben' asks the question of how to deal with the trauma of a suddenly ending life in a collective way and was my tesis project of my bachelor program. I also consider offering this platform for other people's stories one day.

Only recently it happened to me, that an old friend of him heard rumours about his death and was looking for signs in the internet. He found the website and wrote me later:

"Mittlerweile bin ich durch die ganze Seite "durch" - ich hab sie förmlich aufgesogen! Für mich ist dadurch eine Welt, die lange Zeit versunken war, von neuem erstanden und in mir wiederbelebt worden, die Welt, die Peter Stoisser war! Die lebendige Gestaltung durch die Tondokumente der verschiedenen Geschichten von großteils anekdotischem Charakter gestattet es, in diese Welt geradezu "einzutauchen". Vor allem wenn man die Personen kennt, die da erzählen, ist es, als säße man ihnen leibhaftig gegenüber im Teilen von lieben Erinnerungen."

installation, 2015

Exhibited at Offenes Kulturhaus Linz

Each day two bottles of sand are placed on the shelf, one for art work, one for labour, accompanied by corresponding comments in the diary. The sand in the bottles corresponds to the value of my daily working hours.
This process was protocolled for 33 days and showed the interplay between two different ideas of work during a certain period. It had a result of art: 67 h, labour: 84 h.

I Should
self portait, 2 min, 2016

To be unconscious of our own capacity to be conscious is the biggest curse humans live with. My relationship to free jazz is similar to my relationship to myself in that time.

short film, 8 min, 2014

I made this movie after an intense period of getting to know my current partner. Two persons in whole body suits interacting with each other for the first time, oscillating between erotic, poetic and claustrophobic moments in a shared room - about the complexity of getting close.

For a good sound experience please use headphones or speakers with bass. Kino Cuntra
