after working behind the wheels of steel and being member of the rap posse "flavour force" markus seidl moved over to several attempts to interweave "real" public space with virtual public space, working mainly with the stadtwerkstatt/linz and the kunstradio/vienna. from 1996 to 2003 he was working on fundamental radio with his long term collaborateur august black.
with elisabeth schimana he realized the project "a village does nothing" where they persuaded a village to do nothing for a week while substitute personnel did the work. his permanent occupation is to watch the world through a camera´s eye and take a snap every now and then.
