I do not know exactly what the title ‘Soulful Netzteil’ (‘Soulful mains adapter’) means. In it I saw the idea of ascribing a soul to the inanimate technical object of a mains adapter, thereby animating it – an idea which I have always felt drawn to (see ‘Civilized Animism’). I therefore made videos of the devices and cables which I used to listen to music at home. It is of course boring to make a video about cables, adaptors and shelves of CDs. These things are simply used and you do not necessarily pay them much attention. It interested me to record such images of insignificant objects used to transmit music and then to have these images playing again to the rhythm of music through the image.
