Access modes for encountering large industrial bodies

In this work Kitty Maria engages with a windtunnel set-up for calibrating windsensors. Calibration machines are relational type of machines and perform feedbackloops of functionality, exploiting a meta set- up to calibrate a meta instrument to calibrate the local set-up to calibrate the protagonist instrument.

In this video she tries to establish a fringe relationship outside its general function, employing the problem of the access mode as an investigation apparatus in finding ways for a person to meet a machine with no specific desire to operate it. Bypassing the machine-operator relationship to perform a highly tactile and phonetic examination of the prerequisites of the object, producing alternative information than its general use or output power, expanding on ways to encounter a large industrial body outside its functionality.
