In »sight seeing« a figure finds itself exposed on a white page, searching for temporary attractions and its own origin of existence. While the page is inhabited by different foldable objects and subjects, they struggle with the concept of definition and glitch from frame to frame. In this way they find themselves sliding back and forth from a theatrical space into a cage, onto a desktop and back into the comic. The fear of invisibility in our digitized world becomes a driving force for physical and choreographic questions. Over the course of this debate, »sight seeing« is confronted with what constitutes a human being and what represents the inhuman. On their journey through flatness and volume, they encounter other figures and concepts, try to seek revenge on time, desperately desire to become an image and finally fall in love with anxiety. In dialogue with musician Lynn Suemitsu, Julian Weber establishes a temporary living space, which invites the spectator to engage in »sight seeing«.
