Gold is as rare throughout the universe as it is on earth. It is created by extremely energetic explosions in star collisions. Planet Earth's accessible reserves of precious metals are the result of a meteorite bombardment. In Logics of Gold, a balloon carries gold, symbol of wealth and power, beauty and purity into spheres in which no earthly symbolism nor any structure of meaning plays any role anymore. A two-meter diameter gilded helium balloon, onto which a 360° panoramic camera is attached, rises into the skies. This camera films the entire environment: the world gets smaller and smaller on its way to the edge of space, until it bursts at 35 km altitude.

The spectacular moment in which the balloon explodes, spreads its gold particles as well as .... are also part of the virtual reality video Logics Of Gold. This immersive visual experience offers an impressive physical feeling of weightlessness. The VR work Logics Of Gold provides, due to the use of latest technology, access to a reality that you would never be able to experience otherwise! The video is watched on a especially developed stand alone hanging seat to strengthen the experience of flying.
