Over a period of five years, eteam used the motif of the search for water as an element to set two communities into motion, in the US and east Germany. Methods put into action included divining, dowsing, dancing, cruising and digging. The attempt was to trade positions, similar to a game of Chinese checkers. In the end everyone was still in the same place, but things around had shifted, the perspective had changed. The foreign wasn’t so strange anymore; it now belonged to part of the horizon. "One eyed blue tube headed scarecrow" was part of an exhibition called When the dancing gets too stiff, the rain needs to get dug out as ice-cubes, held in May 2011 at gallery M29 in Cologne, Germany.

Artist Biography: Since 2001, Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger have been collaborating under the name eteam. Most of their projects are based on random pieces of land they buy on the internet, on ebay, or in Second Life. These properties provide the foundations for hybrid online and offline explorations and the execution of what we see as a potential improvement to the place. Their projects have been featured at P.S.1, Eyebeam, MUMOK Vienna, Centre Pompidou Paris, Neues Museum Weimar, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Spain, among other places. Eteam’s works have been shown at the Transmediale in Berlin, The Taiwan International Documentary Festival in Taipei, the New York Video Festival, The Rotterdam International Film Festival, and the 11th Biennale of Moving Images in Geneva. They have received grants and commissions from Rhizome, Art in General, NYSCA, and the Experimental Television Center. They have been awarded residencies at Eyebeam, Harvestworks, MacDowell, Yaddo, Smack Mellon, and the Center for Land Use Interpretation. Most recently, they have been awarded a Creative Capital Grant in emerging fields for their project, OS Grabeland, and they are 2010 Fellows of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.
