Numerous conversations with hikers, experts in futurology, church visitors and alpine pasture operators have resulted in a precisely composed audio piece whose tracks are assigned to specific stations along the way.

A journey through fifteen audio and experience spaces: from a bathroom to the Bad Ischl catholic church via meadows to the stony desert of Totes Gebirge and back again to your own daily life.

How can I feel future? The Great Space Walk is a precisely composed audio piece by Christoph Viscorsum / Andreas Hagelüken that leads from our seemingly perfectly arranged world into wild, radical, original nature. Over headphones, audio tracks on your smartphone serve as markers along the trail. Voices from people working in the farming community and science, dance and bioengineering, alpinism and spirituality blend together with the visitor and nature into experience spaces.

Such a process takes time: the trail leads over several stages from alpine cabin to alpine cabin, from audio space to audio space. In the stony desert of the high alpine plateau, humans and the earth can find each other again – the fundamental requirement for shaping a sustainable future together. The descent via the Stodertal valleys leads you back to the last station in your own daily life – where the Great Space Walk truly begins. The first part of the trail up to Rettenbachalm is accessible year-round.
