SHIFT is a space related performative act divided in three acts, in which Andreoni taped his phone to different automated machines in the city, intervening in everyday life and investigating the expressive potential of public infrastructures. SHIFT has been realized in collaboration with Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago and has been presented within the partner program of the 4th Chicago Architecture Biennial: The Available City.

In collaboration with ESS (Experimental Sound Studio Chicago).
Supported by: The Graduate Dean Professional Development Award and Stiftung Kunstfonds.
