One plus one makes more than two allows to physically experience the active and passive roles of power mechanisms: How are concepts such as heteronomy, influence, or immaturity constituted? The work translates the motif of mutual dependence and the question of hierarchical structures into a participatory installation.
The experimental structures must be operated by at least two people at a time - only then does the joint settling and sounding out of a balance begin. Communication and mutual consideration are central to this process. The body and the way one uses it decides whether an encounter on the same level - i.e. at eye level - becomes possible. One plus one makes more than two is an invitation to experience the power and simultaneous powerlessness of your own body and individual agency in a playful way.
