An acoustic intervention in the meadow, based on voice recordings. People with various backgrounds answered the question how they would lead their lives in case they would receive an unconditional basic income. Thereby fundamental topics arise: Work and Meritocracy, monetary valuation of powers, consume, welfare and poverty, solidarity and personal creativity, capital and productive powers, liberty and faineance. The installation is perceived in a situation that interjects daily routine and provides free head space and relaxation. Sunshades and mats in the grass invite to lay down and listen. The audio sources are invisible, the sound comes from the grass and can be heard best close to the ground. Presented at Parque del Sol, Symposium of interdisciplinary art, St. Pölten 2010, and TKI Open 2011, city park Innsbruck
