The Wanderkino deals with the Art and Science under the absence of weight. As a mix of film, performance and lecture it shows flying machines with mechanisms based on gravity and weightlessness, examines cloud cores and presents a gravimetric documentation of an unusual experiment. The audience witnesses a perambulation on the search for reality degree of constructions. It experiences the reality within the movie and the trick within the reality.
Starting point is an artistic project under the condition of weightlessness, entitled "Cloud-Core-Scanner". The experiment participated in a microgravity generating flight manoeuvre, that is usually restricted to scientific interests and was executed in collaboration with the DLR ( German Aerospace Centre).
The Material, generated under unearthly conditions, mixes and raises the issue of communication structures of contemporary art with some quite surreal forms of science (nanotechnology, Fluid-dynamic research, meteorology). As central metaphor as well as the main focus of the filmed procedures serves the theory of cloud formation.
