Marika and Anton left the office they lived in and worked in Budapest for two months as a performative environment open for friends and whipped away hoping to reach Vienna via hitchhiking. However, in Hungary it doesn't go easy; having driven 120 kilometers, they got stuck in Győr for infinity. Forced to come back to Budapest Aliens spent within own installation one more month.
A significant part of artists' phenomenological development—sonic perception studies—is also trapped in the focus of research in Budapest. Using the big branch, part of a wooden chair, decomposed electric guitar artists built two electronic monochords which they named the Samotryas, which proved to be perfect for performative sound investigations.
Marika and Anton reduced the technology of musical performance to the extreme to remove a musician from music, thus establishing a meeting point of environmental, performative, and objective art. What remains is active musical experience non-existent without one who listens.

After the end of the office working term, the space became an exhibition, and then it was restored at the Art Budapest 2017 fair. Some of the exhibition items were stolen by unknowns.
Art can be created anywhere, from whatever, and anytime: only an artist is required.

By this act, an artist constitutes a general blank space (place for being) that can be occupied by any object. ANTON KRIVULA
